Thanks for your input, Dan. I see you don't get what I am talking about and that is ok. You just keep beating everybody. I see that works for you.
Have a great 4th and such.
At a point people have to succeed. We can call it beating them
or whatever name is useful, but in the end it is about controlling agression. Even just getting out of the way....is controlling
an outcome. Sure it can be an uplifting practice in the dojo that does indeed develop spirit, but it is a bu-do. I still find it peculiar for people to shy away from acknowledging the need for success while they wear budo clothing and swing weapons. Once we acknowledge that, it becomes a discussion of practical necessities in doing so.
Happy fourth as well to you and Ron.
