I hope you say this in jest. Otherwise everything everyone is learning is just a degredation of soemthing that went before. It is neither evolution or devolution, just merely decay.

Re: Does this mean I'm a ronin?

My first sensei (way back in 1982) told his students that he had only one request of us - that we surpass him. I was only 12, but I remember it like it was yesterday.

I think it is one of the marks of a good teacher to inspire and encourage the students to exceed him/her; to reach for their own limitations, and to continue to seek knowledge even when there is little more that the teacher can impart. Certainly, not all teachers subscribe to this theory...
