    At least Dale tries, at times, to be civil. Overall he comes off as a nice guy that knows a lot about the Bujinkan.

    Ben Cole, on the other hand, seems to thrive on talking down to everyone. The first time he came to MAP he was temp banned several times for his attitude.

    You see, this is what really gets me.

    One of my fondest memories from taijutsu training had to do with the respectful, reverent attitudes everyone had. There was no ego flinging, no heavy handed macho displays, and no peacock strutting. People understood that they were studying a non-competitive, classical art with a lot of historical significance.

    It lended a bit of a "Sophisticated Charm" to the style.

    Yet, crap like this blows that whole feeling right out of the water.

    Now we've got BJK Shihans acting like stuck up, arrogant pro boxers...except that at least a Pro Boxer has knocked out a lot of people to warrant their attitude!

    Me "I was kicked in the head by the guys sparring next to me."

    Eduardo "Ino what happened but i didnt say you could stop."

    Me "Um.. I guess I keep going."

    Eduardo "You dont stop until i say stop, you dont get tired until i say your tired, keep going."

    depends on whether you're using a gaussian probability distribution, or a normal one.
