Re: Practice without tradition

IMHO, tradition brings with it the practice of respect, disciplines, and honoring our heritage. While it may not be necessary, I would miss it if it wasn't there.

I might as well be studying folk-dancing. But, even there is tradition.

Even by ignoring it, you imply that its there.

But like a plant without roots, it would soon die.

He bows, honoring tradition, and leaves for the Dojo.
