Re: To bow or not to bow
Maggie, I didn't realize Bjorn was one of O Sensei's first generation Japanese student. If it's so, forgive my ignorance.
But even if that was the case, what exactly does bowing have to do with a gendai martial art; maybe your effectivenes applying techniques will improve, or will it be that your inner self will get closer to enlightment.
Of course, your O Sensei's deshi, his rules. You won't see me training with them, there are many many fishes in the water.
