I hope I am not making a mistake by taking what you have said literally, but in your mind -
1. Tomiki style is 'bull'.
2. The entire U.S. is shallow and commercial.
3. We are all 'tournament heretics.'

I would like to ask you why you have formed these opinions. I would probably attach more credibility to your sweeping statement if for example you said ' I went to a competition and......'

In your original post you said that Budo was about spiritual developement, and that to me means among other things the development of a tolerant mind. How can you point out the value of such a quality and in the same post be so intolerant?

I personally do not think that I have the right to judge a particular style or to judge an entire peoples.

Why do you?
