It impossible to measure yourself objectively against someone else in an art like this.

And sometime 'different' is better than 'equivalent to'.

However, I believe those of us who think humbly are likely to be closer to the path than the egotostical types who love to point out how many people they have overtaken who used to be their teacher or senior.

For myself, I am often critical of the actions of some high ranking people, especially those who relentlessly commercialise the art with more fervour than they seem to apply to their own training, but I still have to accept that some of these people have better taijutsu than I will ever have, and I'm not happy about it but have to live with it and keep going regardless.

I hope that last post was cryptic.

I believe the current vernacular is WTF.

No, the correct term is "commercial spam".

Unless it was posted by someone with a footwear fetish. Unlikely since the links all go to the same site.
