    Overall, I learned nothing. [/fail].

    If you spent the time to read the whole thread, are you his current or former student?

    Then Caine said, "Is it good to seek the past, Master Po? Does it not rob the present?"
    And Master Po said, "If a man dwells on the past, then he robs the present. But if a man ignores the past, he may rob the future. The seeds of our destiny are nurtured by the roots of our past."
    And then Caine said, "I seek not to know the answers, but to understand the questions."

    And the question is, "How come you fuckers aren't jumping on Fug's wagon in the BBC new campaign to wipe out shitty schools?"

    Right, Ochiai thinks of himself as Master Po, leading his blindly gullable students....

    Good question. As for Hidy Ochiai, I have never met or seen him personally. I'm just a student taking a karate class for college credit and was interested in learning more about Washin Ryu. This thread was one of the top choices of a simple search therefore I was misled that I might find something useful or interesting here. Overall, all I found in this thread was 22 pages of stupid comments back and forth with few if any actually being constructive toward anything.

    And no I didnt register just to post in this thread. This site actually has some other helpful information that I thought was worth checking out.

    All you have done is post in this thread. So until there is proof otherwise, you registered just to post a nonsense response to necro a thread. From one nOOb to another nOOb, I suggest introduce yourself in newbitown and not post much in YMAS until you understand how this site works. Either that or buy some good flame resistant clothing and health insurance.

    If you are taking class at BU, then you must be taking class from Dale Iannone. He is probably Ochiai's best instructor. As far as headquaters goes, it has a culture of it's own. Those who stay for any length of time buy into it. It's all about Ochiai worshipping. The focus is all about point sparring and students don't usually do well in open tournaments. As far as learning self-defense, the curriculum is worthless....

    :llorar:
    You realize, you just did what you complained about right?

    You added nothing constructive and made a few stupid comments.
