I know lots of people who like to smoke up and do tai chi.
So do I. They "do Tai Chi", but they don't really do Tai Chi; it's almost invariably their "take" on tai chi, not real Tai Chi. Happens in a lot of arts where you pretend you're something, you use lots of foreign words, you have authority-figures, and you wear uniforms, and you make up your own meaning that are "just as good as what the founders did... maybe even better, since they weren't as cool and clever as I am about understanding the depths of the universe and love".

Farm out.
