My mother told me a long time ago:
"If you can't say anything nice, shut your yap".
Words to live by and I often wish others had heard my mother, too.
I suppose I could go on there and try to chip away at the misconceptions.
I need to practice.
Some of these people seem sincere and are there to learn. Others are there to foment trouble.
I'll stay here. It's nice here and most of us speak close to the same language.
As I have no particular insights into YCF's life, not ever having met the man, it would be quite useless to try and put in my two cents about him, anyway. My conjectures are no more valid than anyone elses and everyone is entitled to his opinion and as far as I'm concerned has the right to express it too.
Right or wrong, at least these people are expressing their opinions. I'll leave them to it.
My only thoughts on YCF and his prowess I will post here, on his sons website, for all to see who could give a darn.
I don't know a flaming thing about YCF himself or his martial prowess, his training methods, or what he did or did not "know" about his families art. However, I have met YCF's great-grandson and I wouldn't try to cross hands with him on a bet. Not even for a REALLY big bet.
That's all I need to know about that.

If he could recognize this about himself, then I sure should about myself.
I'm going to practice now.
