This is accomplishment. When you stop learning, and start innovating.

A true master...will never consider themsleves a masterof the arts...truly it would take a life time.

The best one can do is hope to master themselves.

Innovation comes form learning..when we stop learning..we stop living.

Peace,
Tae

It takes a very humble person for me to consider them a master. I only know a handful of people that I would call "Master". Those would be Master Chai (Muay Thai) and Guro Dan Inosanto. These 2 great men live for the pleasure of spreading the martial arts that they know and are always trying to improve themselves and their systems. Since I am not into the Japanese systems, I don't really look at Grand Master or Platinum Master ranks. Truly, a master is one that has achieved great acts for the betterment of their martial art and their students.

It takes even more humility to realize that they will never master all there is to kow.

Peace,

There is no such thing as Mastery, just as in life.... there are only different levels of beginning...

"Karate-do is a lifetime study"
That is one of the rules of Shito Ryu. It is true to form. There is no end of learning. That can never be. For us to have learned everything would mean that we would be in control of the Universe. Your comparison to Green Tea puzzled me at first, but I understood it....in the end.

Don't stop thinking, but I think you should go out more:)

it seems:

the more you know, the more you don't know.

also:
you don't know what you don't know.

I forget who said it but I remember it was a very old and very respected Martial Arts master. He said as he was performing a simple inside block, "I believe I am finnaly begining to understand this movement"
