Some people call Chado aesthetic, others call it plain stupidity. But then it is the experience that counts.

    Some people think you're a ******, others feel that they're above juvenile sexual insults. But then it's the mutual agreement that you suck that counts.

    Gyukdo, Korean archery. It was not influenced by Kyudo at all, as archery has a deep tradition in Korea.

    There was a saying in Asia centuries ago, "The spear in China, the bow in Korea, and the sword in Japan."

    No, the Japanese actually took kimchi from the Koreans, and call it kimuchi. It tastes absolutely horrible, like metallic ****.

    On the video, we've got a guy that is doing something according to the method in which it is preserved (ritual, movement, etc). Chances are, he wants to do it, likes doing it, and gets something from it. Just because he's not Japanese, should he not be allowed to study a long-preserved Japanes art in the precise method in which it exists and has existed for centuries (decades, millenia, whatever).

    If a non-Japanese wanted to learn Japanese tea ceremony, with all the steps, and perform it in a traditional manner, who are we to care. In fact, you have something that is old, and looks like it does because that's how it has looked, and that's what the people doing it want to look like. Wanting a guy to shoot the arrow differently just because he is not Japanese is like looking at the woman and yelling:

    "Just pour the tea, bitch!"

    What I'm really saying is, (and if you read the OP you'd know this) I'm concerned with the people obsessed with kyudo for some convoluted idea of Zen, excusing their lack of ability to hit the target (which equates exactly to skill) by saying, "Oh, well, it's just a breathing and concentration excercise."

    Loads of Kimchi is imported to Japan from S Korea. What, does it become "metallic ****" on the way over?

    That's a stupid comparison anyway.
