Dear Charles:

"....According to your profile you're located in Aldergrove, British Columbia. Do you mean to tell me that the police allow folks to beat the tar out of each other with sticks where you are?....."

As I started reading this thread I cast back in my mind to a recent thread on SFI where a High School person wanted tips from sword people on "boffing". Then I thought about pet-owners who want cats without claws and dogs that can't bark. Then I remembered that we have Karate and TKD competitions where you don't really hit people, and paintball events where you don't really shoot people. Or how about people who want to adopt babies, because they're so cute, but not because they really want to raise children. I guess the theme I am picking up on are people who want to "write checks", but don't actually want to "spend money". I hope this isn't a sign of what will happen to the sword arts in another 50 years. What do you think? Four millenia reduced to adults chasing around hitting each other with sticks? FWIW.

Best Wishes,

Bruce

Dear CXT:

I had to smile a bit at your post. There was an exchange on E-BUDO (?) quite sometime back in which a DRAJJ person was taken to task about how defensive and secretive the art was about its practice and traditions and so forth. On that occasion one of the comments was about how "closed-minded" the DRAJJ people are. The response that was made was almost indentical to the one you made. Good call!

Best Wishes,

Bruce

Last one, this is becoming tiresome--and pointless.

"Before I was enlightend, I saw a river as just a river, a rainstorm as a just a rainstorm, and a mountian as just a mountian.
Now that I am enlightend I know a river is just a river, a rainstorm is just a rainstorm and an a mountain is just a mountain."
