Re: Terry Dobson's Training History
I certainly feel like I continue to learn from teachers long past, and not just MA's, but in many other arenas as well. This is because I tend to examine problems or situations with an eye (or ear) to the thought of "What would Prof. so-and-so think?" or "How would Sensei what's-his-name approach this?". I often don't have my own answers, but can formulate them from my perceptions of those past teachers, and examination of what their wisdom on the subject has impressed upon me. It may be old knowledge re-lived, but it seems more like fresh learning to me.
I would stop short of saying that this could be characterized or claimed as long-term time-in-training, but it certainly represents a continuation of the relationships.
