  • posting and skills.

    Hi All,

    I recently viewed a thread and hai hai pointed something about someones number of post in relation to kendo experience. Question: does the number of posts in this forum relatively commensurate to someones ability, skill and experience?

    Yes. I am 22 posts from rokudan.

    Hai_hai, despite his national disability, jumped from godan to hachidan, and looking forward to his hanshi exam.

                Hizen - but "practice" is the right word, I don't see myself as "real" yet Even tho I did get the pyjamas from 9 circles just this am so at least I can look the part a bit more now. God they're heavy! I can have fun tying myself up in knots now...

                    On a serious note (sorry to bring everyone back to the purpose of this thread) but of course not. Anyone can type a witty comment or an "i agree" but if they do that two hundred times it doesn't make them sankyu if they've never stepped inside a dojo.

                    It only becomes a problem (like we've seen in the past...) when you get people with little or limited experience acting like great authorities. Peronsally, I try to be careful with any 'advice' I give. I've only been in armour for two weeks - I'm not about to go telling anyone how to perform correct waza but if you need advice on how to build up strength in a weak left wrist, I'm your girl. I've had to work through that problem myself and did so successfully so that's something I can safely give someone advice on without screwing up their kendo.

                    I've now fallen into the habit of checking someone's profile if I don't already know them if they're giving technical advice to check their ranking and experience in the given field.

                      Good idea.

                      Check old posts of mine and you won't find kendo advice as I am relatively new to kendo, but much more involved in iai and kenjutsu.

                        A high post count is like a pimped out sports car... people are compensating for something...

                        Hey!!! Stop looking at me like that!!!

                        Seriously, I think post count is more a function of how bored we are at work or how much we are procrastinating from our studies...

                          Agreed. That's the beauty of being self-employed... AutoCAD/Dreamweaver on-screen, with KW & E-Bu in the background...

                            It's something to do when you're not in the dojo
