Seriously, the West is one of two things: too arrogant to think, observe and study true Asian arts; or just miles behind.
For the last 30 years I've been studying, the amount of criticism Aisan arts gets makes me laugh as I watch Western fighters develop "new" and "unique" exercises to help fighters that have already been used in Asian arts for centuries.
