I will, but only because Omega was cool and schooled me on the do's and don'ts. That was cool. Now we'll move on...

"Trained in wrestling for 3 years when I was little...forgot most of it. Trained in a Shaolin "McDojo" until I saw it for what it was. Since I live in Seattle, I was contemplating either Krav Maga or Dux-ryu, as soon as I get my grades up at the UW, that is... "

If the established schools were impressed by the martial ability of the newcomer during the encounter, then they would, by tradition, be allowed to stay open. If the new school couldn't defend themselves effectively, they would be disgraced by being publicly defeated. This traditional political encounter between different schools became a favourite motif of martial arts movie makers.
