    Default MT: An Appeal to the Kempo family

    An Appeal to the Kempo family
    By Hand Sword - Wed, 10 Jan 2007 10:24:30 GMT

    ====================

    Hello and much respect to ALL members of the Kempo family!

    I am writing this as an appeal to all of us to please rise above the sniping and attacks against each other. I understand, that some of us have feelings toward some prominent members, of certain organizatios, that run very deep. I understand that you have had bad experiences, however, you have risen above that, moved on, and continued to train. I ask that you please remember that those, who are the object of your disgust are not apart of these forums. Any of the feelings that have been displayed lately, to those who are part of their organizations, should be re-directed to those members, if you feel the need to snipe. They did it to you, take it up with them! Remember, their problems with each other, are their problems, not ours. There's no need to carry on that negativity in here, against those that had nothing to do with it, and, who are here, as the rest of us, to take part in something positive. We are all on the same journey, ultimately, and I ask us all to please remember that. We want all to feel comfortable and welcome!


    Respect to us all!

    True... (knocking on wood)

    My belief is that this is because KT is so focused on one branch of the MA's... whereas MT covers them all...

    That (IMHO) tends to lead to a lot of chest-pounding...

    Not necessarily a bad thing... but it can get out of hand rather quickly...

    But, I must say, the mods over on MT will nip it in the bud once it's seen...

    Sounds like somebody should direct him to KT!!!
