We're all "imitators" of the original styles of martial arts. When I do Aikido, I'm usually imitating Toyoda Sensei imitating Ueshiba Sensei and Tohei Sensei... or Sogunuma Sensei imitating Ueshiba Sensei. How well we do it is what makes our "style" closer to the original. That's why it matters who your teachers are...
