The whole concept of higher education is negated unless the sole criterion used to determine if students qualify is the grades they score on standardized tests. education is purely an issue of learning - we can no longer afford to have it polluted by damn politics. leave pollution up to the politicians
Too much horsing around with unrealistic stances and classic forms and rituals is just too artificial and mechanical, and doesn't really prepare the student for actual combat. A guy could get clobbered while getting into this classical mess. Classical methods like these, which i consider a form of paralysis, only solidify and constrain what was once fluid. Their practitioners are merely blindly rehearsing routines and stunts that will lead nowhere.
