Re: Practice without tradition

Does one think less of O'Sensei if he/she doesn't bow regularily to his picture?
Does one honor less his/hers training partner if there's no bowing?
It seems as though what you're really asking is whether or not it is necessary for someone to observe the physical ettiquette of respect if they are respectful otherwise. You might as well ask if the dog has Buddha nature..
