Re: philosophical or practical martial art?

Mary:

It is difficult to debate with a person who has immeasurable talents:

1) Knows what O'Sensei meant and did without ever being able to read in Japanese what O'Sensei wrote; without ever being a direct student of a direct student.......
2) Knows what Tohei meant and did without ever being able to read in Japanese what Tohei wrote; without ever training directly with Tohei; without ever being a direct student of a direct student.......
3) Has been there and done it.........
4) Has logic and reasoning skills beyond question......
5) Has researched and understood all.....

His videos serve as a testament to all that he knows and can do.....

Marc Abrams
