Story was paraphrased from Toby. He also thought it was probably a bad idea.

Re: I Was Wrong

I am not addressing the OP or even the original topic, but a number of posts in this thread demonstrate the severe disconnect from the realities of fighting and physical conflict that training in the martial arts so often encourages.

such as? It seems you should state the content of the posts you disagree with (probably in a new thread since you say it doesn't have anything to do with the OP) otherwise it appears you're trolling.

LOL! Troll hating.

Unless stated otherwise, all wisdom, follies, harshness, malice that may spring up from my writing are attributable only to me.

No they don't, and there is enough of a percentage of people training this who can kick ass ...for real...and have watched some pretty stressful sparring in open rooms that they....like me ....don't really care anymore about this amateurish baiting.
If you can fight...and I mean seriously take and deliver a beating ....then I respect that. So can dozens of guys who are training this who deserve the same respect in kind.
You......Michael ...simply have no idea what so ever of the group of people you are addressing.
This type of drive by shooting....post is beneath you.

Re: I Was Wrong

I think the inspiring part is that people, are going to certain people to learn this here and there, and the people THEY are going to????? All felt the same way when they encountered it.
It places the real value then upon the work, instead of individuals. It also validates the the fact that it was this work, that kept producing unusual martial artists.That it was the tie that binds us all.

that's doesn't surprise me that he would say that given the old "steal my art" mindset. it's not likely that prior to very recent history, more than 6-12 guys at any one time (globally) had a very deep skill level.

If you already know the secret nutcracker fajin, then why would you need to go to the grandmaster to learn it? And that would, by default, make you at least one of the 12 guys who know it, so you couldn't be voted down to 13th? It's a paradox, man...
