Tigers and rabbits

In our western sports, and in a good many other things too, the tigers won’t play with the rabbits. But in budo, however much of a tiger a man is – he’s in the club team, perhaps in the county team, perhaps in the national team, and practises like mad – he always gives twenty minutes of his time every day to give instruction to a beginner, to a complete beginner, in order to help develop this unity. The purpose of budo is not that some are performing stars and the others are just watching them, but that there’s a unity.
