If MORE proof was needed that this is nothing more than a rank beginner basking in the glow of his teacher's reflected glory, consider the fact that he/ she isn't even AWARE of the disservice to the teacher's image that he/ she is fomenting.
CommonCents, I CHALLENGE you to show your posts to Mr. Johnson.

For a bit of craic could someone just not e-mail some choice quotes from this topic to Mr. Johnson (if he has an e-mail address that is).

I know that this is a childish idea but the kid in me was screaming at me to suggest this as soon as i read Magon's post.

Kids always have more fun.

Mark,
I am sure that if t'temple does not already sell such badges, they will if we let them know there is a demand for them. They will probably only cost around a tenner or so if you attend a seminar costing £40 or more. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

Commoncents,
Thanks your input, we have the message now: you and your sensei are great and we are all crap. Thanks for enlightening us.
Sharon

While not totally unappreciative of your efforts to get the good word out...and agreeing that Willie Johnson is a decent person. The only defintion of a true sensei is the one that you make for yourself. Only you know what you are looking for in a person to guide you in your training.

While Mr. Johnson may be the perfect definition of a sensei for you, he may not be for me or others. Some are not concerned with any spiritual teachings, and focus on fighting. Others may choose enlightenment first, martial aspects second.

There are an untold number of martial arts, and reasons for studying. You have not yet been exposed to much, and this is a good place to get different viewpoints.

Sooooo...be careful or when you get tired, you might wipe your own face with same rag that you are wiping us with.
