, glad you caught the positives!
Took me a moment… the language filter…then it hit me oh yeah I indirectly used the “F” word. Sorry if my vernacular disturbs your sensibilities. But where I come from you hear it out of the mouths of wee children , I think they pick it up from American TV
you know MoFo and all that American culture we get off the airwaves. America has much cultural influence on our nation as they dominate our air waves.
I work in the transportation industry and talk to truckers daily. I tend to speak the lingo after all these years. In my neck of the woods if encounter an a-hole or someone behaving like one we tend to let them know about it up here. We are a simple people and tend to deal with issues directly.
Now in the hopes of being pc I did attempt to translate
“ Steve Sensei please stick something in your grain path and seek self gratification!” However it came out as gibberish as a result of linguistic sentence structure issues.
But rest assured that I will endeavour to be as culturally PC as possible. I will reframe from uttering any 4 letter works until such time as your new bundle of joy brings them home from school and can explain the concepts to you. This should give you a six or seven year reprieve from this horrific word.
Now had I spent the time I could have said to my buddy Steve Sensei : あなた自身に愛を作りなさい This would have expressed my displeasure with his post and it would have been in keeping with Georges linguistic demands. As a Canuck we also live under demands of the French Language Police. The FLP are very aggressive in their demand to preserve French culture. So I also understand you are but another language cop doing her job. I’ll do my best to help you out!
Glad you thought that was a 1st class rant! Anything worth doing should be done well.
Please rest assured that I’m responding to you from a position not influenced by emotion. I am not crying or losing sleep or angrily pounding on my key board. I am simply responding to your post by telling you to go get stuffed! I’m quite relaxed.
2... i never said you PERSONALLY were a bad teacher.
You are hair splitting no? Now what? Claim it’s just an inadvertent phantom insult. Bill would be impressed!
Tell you what Steve. If you honestly feel you have done no harm you can give up your daily self gratification exercises. No worries, mate!
Unless of course you are enjoying the your self, if so please feel free to continue.
Steve and Shana, please start acting like big kids and stop crying about your rights to an opinion. You’ve both expressed one. I don’t have to agree with it. And if I don’t you’ll recover, to speed up your emotional healing, it’s probably best to accept the fact in life some people will not see the world through your eyes. This in no way should cause you the kind of emotional distress and moral outrage you are displaying….get over it! At no time in this thread have I told either of you that your not entitled to your own opinion so piss off with this silly posturing. Can I say piss off? Well I guess if I can’t the language filter will catch it.
Now can we return to some healthy dialogue or do you guys still want to play word games and posture wounded, because I’m not interested, too time consuming and counter productive.
so i will apologize for pissing off people.
Don’t demand kata clips Steve, don’t demand anything of me. And no I’m not going to measure peckers and compare either.
This threat originally didn’t mention kata BTW.

Laird, how do you feel about offering principles AND drills at the same time? The way you worded that in your post, it sounds like an "either/or" situation for you. I use drills (among other things) to teach and instill the principles in my students. But the drills HAVE to be realistic.
Please be direct and don't beat around the bush like in your last post above.
Ha! You caught me working on my interpersonal skills Jeff. Welcome to the forums. I find it necesary to focus on house cleaning projects from time to time.
I have no problem presenting principles and drills. Drills make great vehicles for learning. You will from time to time note on my posts that I some times refer to drills in a derogatory fashion. I'm referring to the traditional warm up drills, the traditional bunkai , and the yakasuko kumites when I'm speaking in this manner. I have no use for them. I don't train them don't teach them. I'm not a main stream Uechi guy , from time to time it makes folks uncomfortable.
