Funny thing I posted this 2-3 years ago and I just happened to log on today after not logging onto martialtalk for a long time.
Anyway, KenpoDave it could be the fact that Bruce was never on the family tree and/or I am not recalling what I may or may not have seen correctly. I thought I...
Once and a while you just realize it's time to hang up the uniform and find something else to do. I hung mine up a year or so ago and didn't look back. Except for reading a few forums once and a while for entertainment.
John I have re-read your post a couple of times. I truly appreciate that you would like to hear (read) my opinions about Kosho. I have already made my thoughts known more than I problably should have. With that I will take my leave and go back into keyboard retirement and keep to myself. Kosho...
The problem is when"The Natural Laws of Kosho guide us." The rank structure tends to be abused. Folks who put in a lot of work tend to get upset when others get pushed ahead, sometimes for political reasons. It has happened to more than one in the system.
I agree totally, but my concern has always been for the accountability of material end. So that if one person is not ranked for lack of knowledge in an area. That he/she is not held back while others are promoted for having the same or even a larger lack of knoweldge.
So much for keeping to...
Your right, it is nothing to be embarrased about.
However, tightening the standards would not be a bad thing either.
If one person is held accountable for core material for advancement, so should everyone.
Kosho has a curiculum however, it's pretty obvious not everyone in the art has to follow it.
Rank and position as it pertains to curiculum is not standard in kosho.
Let's just say it's all kinda fluid.
I decided recently to retire from the arts. I don't believe that quit is the right word. I put in a lot of good years and did a lot of work for other people instead of looking out for myself. Burnout is a good word to describe it.
Here is a specific definition from U.S. code.
Any thoughts, ideas ,questions and comments.
