in thread OT: The WarriorMonks

I use to spar regularly with some shotokan karatemen, powerful is proably the most fitting word. Most martial artists seem to have a lot of "also"s, I've studied Nippon Ketsugo Ryu Jujutsu (as was meantioned in root node), Goju-ryu Karatedo, Sei-fu Ryu Aikijujutsu, and Tai-chi Quan...and that's if I don't include seminars. Indeed when I wrote this I was most focused on Nippon Ketsugo Ryu, but now I am most seriously praticing the other 3 meantioned arts.

I like the old saying: "If one is willing to teach, I will learn"

"Cogito cogito ergo cogito sum - I think that I think, therefore I think that I am." Ambrose Bierce

    well... i usually want to learn one art at the time... and only do that art for a couple of years.. otherwise, i think, you start mixing all the differents arts and you will loose the true meaning of the art.

    i mean: i really want to learn kendo, bojujutsu, tendoryu aikido, taichi quan, wushu... but first i have to finish my sword school (well, at least get past beginnerslevel ;-)) before i can learn a new system. it's about the essence, and i think you can't learn the essence on a few years... but that's just my idea about it.

    but... it's really nice to see how many warriormonks there are.. i've always called myself a warriormonk, long before i knew or ever heard about perlmonks (or even before i was doing perl)... just because i'm pretty spiritual, i have a strong sense for justice, and martial arts form my existence... or maybe i'm just weird ;-)
