Whoever said it and made us believe it,
That we have to all look like the ancient masters and each other to be doing legitimate budo?
That we have to do the same exercises and kata the same way month after month, year after year, hoping one day to transcend?
That a bunch of old dead guys from another part of the world should know best how we should express our artform here and now?
That there even exists one right way to do an ARTFORM, for goodness sake!
Who was it? Because we should hang them up in effigy and fling our poop at them!
