This ninja is actually harder to see than the Hawthorne ninjas:
Larus Marinus, thanks for your note. I thought about it all day, on and off, trying to come up with a clear way of expressing an idea without ending up on someone's S*** List.
I think it comes down to percentages.
Over time, in looking at people and systems of people, they can often be broken down for examination by percentages.
Roughly X number will drop out for various reasons in the initial period, Y number will move to another martial arts venue and continue to progress (changing interests in style type, seeing through the shallow instruction and wanting more, etc.) in the intermediate time frame, Z number will continue to adhere to that school for a longer time (even if the school is made up) until other life interests over take them.
It is almost that pattern in any voluntary institution, just change out the martial arts words, and make it what ever volunteer program you know of. It is a kind of human pattern to non-obligatory behavior.
And I thought about what you and Morning Lemon were writing about, the delusional or self-aggrandizement that creates its own problems.
Some times it is not the instruction, but the individual. And, I can own this one myself. When I was taking Karate in Japan, I thought I was tough.... No, only in my own mind. It was a process to get past my own stupidity and become more real in perception and response. And, that was without being in the McDonald's ninjas!
I was just fortunate not to have gotten into a real fight, because I would been, as described in Larus Marinus' note, spitting out my teeth onto the floor.
Please don't bring Juggalos into this. All they know is smoking pot and flinging feces at internet celebrities.
