Re: Showing Respect: Don't Try To Out Japanese the Japanese

I like the comment in your introductory paragraph that respect is essential even before training. One of the things I enjoy most about training is being able to learn about a culture far older than my own; both the language and cultural values. The respect we show is indicative of the level of respect we have for ourselves.

Enjoyed this article. Thanks Peter
