One of the core tenets of the martial-arts is humility, but unfortunately some experts dont appear to embrace these beliefs and instead insist on being hostile, arrogant and boastful. If you know someone like this you may want to show this short story to them of a intelligent Zen Master that's told inside The Warrior Within by John Little. (Or, it is possible to just send this article )……. to them.

It was obvious to the master from the start of the conversation that the professor wasn't so much interested in studying Zen as h-e was in impressing the master with his or her own views and information.

One very popular martial artist who epitomized the quality of being learning from others and open-minded is the story quoted above and Bruce Lee was one of his favorites. Regrettably for his family and for the remainder of-the earth, Bruce Lee unfortunately died more than 30 years ago on July 21st 1973.

Bruce Lee examined a number of different fighting styles and his cup was often empty and willing to be filled.
