None are so blind as those that won't see.
Mook Jon man, everything you said is true, but some won't listen to you, even though it is obvious you have experience behind what you are saying. Let it be. We've said our peace. If it does good and helps someone actually find a teacher and really learn then great. If not, then let them live in thier fantasy.
What are you talking about? Both me and Tanaku are in agreement with mook jong man. However we are trying to get you guys to understand a bit more about what self-training is, even if it's not martial arts.
To be fair, we know about self-training and you don't, it's natural that Tanaka and I have more authority on the subject than anybody else here. You can't dismiss something you don't know about. Even if you are experienced in martial arts, you haven't tried to self-train one with the experience of self-training. Like I said before, that is a skill in itself.
