    And even that wouldn't constitute mastery, as these numbers average out to one style every month. You would have a shallow or even reasonable overall knowledge, but no mastery.

    One post in 7 years has to be some kind of a record.

    You can master as much as you choose to believe you have mastered, until you find a new way to understand what you previously believed you had mastered.

    I got some time, do you need a Robin look alike. :)

    Answer this post and you will be up to (3). Go to the meet and greet and grab a few there, then the "Last Person Thread", and you're on your way. Hey, you never know.

    Seriously, at least the "Meet and Greet". :)

    There’s no such thing as mastering a martial art. I have studied American Kenpo for forty years and I am still finding new principles and different ways to use my martial art. To me, Kenpo or most martial arts are not finite but most are infinite. I wish I had another hundred years to study and better myself in Kenpo.
