Re: The journey begins with the first step

My favorites:
"A technique will unfold /eventually/..."
"Yes, it /is/ possible to blend with that, but..."
For the beginner who's /too/ cheery about the whole shoshin thing...
For the dope who keeps advocating 5-person randori with real knives.
<Student> "So, uh, would you say this is more of a triangular motion uniting fire with wind, or a sort of tidal pattern that unites sword and universe?"
<Sensei> "...shomen-uchi ikkajo. Hajime."
For the new shodan, fifth kyu shihan, et al.
Just blend!
