The Dangers of Self-Proclaimed Martial Arts Masters
Once again Don Cunningham has shown his skill as a writer and a martial artists with this very needed martial arts article on the above topic. So read it and then scroll down for my opinion (for whatever that's worth), but do read it first so my statements do not prejudice yours.
Sensei J. Richard Kirkham
As always, I enjoyed your latest ezine. I haven't seen it in awhile, so I was beginning to wonder if you would continue.
I've written another article which you may enjoy. It's at:
I hope you like it.
Mr. Cunningham makes some excellent points in this article. I would remind everyone, that a martial arts style has to start from somewhere and more than likely they were considered rebels at the time, but the examples Mr. Cunningham gives far outweigh anyone's need to do some good by making a change. These people are on an ego trip and are going to ride on everyone's praises that does not know any better.
Having a background in exercise physiology, I laughed out loud at the formula the one example was giving for power (yes I know I'm not perfect either see the last issue in Karate Kwestions, but this was obviously made up).
I would offer additional advice when you are talking to people who have outrageous claims; If the martial arts master attempts to explain something in a very mysterious seeming way, he is either trying to impress you, or does not know the true answer himself. If the martial arts master will not let you watch class because you do not belong to his secret organization, he may have a problem (or he might be a redneck - sorry Jeff). I had an instructor tell me he had a dream about my place and wanted to train with me. I said okay and later on found out he said that to all his new students as well. I've also met the person to be the next Emperor of China right here in Hawaii so you do not have to be in martial arts to be ummmmmmm, different.
The danger is most people out there know very little about martial arts and anyone that has explained anything for a long enough period of time can make the argument sound convincing, especially to to the novice. I spent 10 years in sales myself so off the top of my head, I gave a student this example of sounding convincing even when it was obviously, well let's just say stupid - "You must punch with your feet together. The reason for this is economy of motion. By not moving your feet you do not give away the fact you are throwing a punch by telegraphing with your bases of support. Therefore you should always punch with your feet together." Ridiculous! Right, but if you were a novice it would make sense. Don't do that by the way it really is not the way to generate power.
Thank you for your support
