    Not what was claimed and that's a non sequitur anyhow.

    This just isn't the case and the history of martial art styles in Japan and how they developed proves it out. Additionally, Karate students in Okinawa were always going against their master's wishes and sneaking off to get into fights to prove their skills. 500 people on this thread can complain about my reading comprehension skills and logic, I don't give a rats ass, because I know I am 100% correct in what I have said on here.
    Hahahahaaaaa....
    Your "never" assertion was totally incorrect.
    There are legions of blind followers. It's in part why this site was created.
    So yes you suck at reading comprehension.

    I never argued that students don't blindly follow their teachers. Many of them have and did all throughout history and indeed still do. Why not read what I am saying with a bit more care before you type in response to my words? What I said was not all students have and this has always been true.

    No these two are not the same and your claim of context is completely incorrect.

It wasn't in any way suggesting that some martial art students have not blindly followed their leaders, many have done just that. But at no time in history have all martial artists blindly followed their leaders.

    Oh he does this thread to thread. He did it in first foray onto the forum and then started crowing about winning the internet. His next goal will be to make the thread about him and his experiences.

    I can't help it if you guys can't read. Anyone with an honest intellect and half a brain would understand that when you say "citizens never blindly followed their leaders" and then in the next sentence say "there has always been a citizen that has spoken out." you aren't saying that no citizen didn't blindly follow their leaders.

    Nobody said that "it" (student going against the instructor) never happened. That was never the point.

    Never. The. Point.







    Look what you've made me do. I now have to **** up my own thread just to try to force a cull. AHHHHHHHH!!!

    Apple pie is, and always has been, a delicious treat. I don't care how many times you try to reframe the argument or however many classic examples you bring up, apple pie will always be a considerate dessert option for the masses.

    In fact, I would venture to guess that every single apple pie ever made has been scrumptious. On top of that, there has been one apple pie that fell short of delicious and went on to become a rubarb.

    But don't take my word for it.



    Carl fucking Sagan agrees with me. Why else would he be having apple pie?

    I think you need to re-read this thread, paying close attention to Coach Josh's post about nutmeg.

    A la Mode, FTW.
