I’m frequently stunned and saddened at the number of videos on the web showing hopelessly unskilled, out-of-shape “Kurodee Masters” (i.e. ego maniacs) demonstrating kata or technique on hapless students.
I would like them to learn a new word in Japanese “Jadou” (邪道) which literally means heresy, but colloquially it means more along the lines of doing something incorrectly or wrongly from what is usually done. In other words, it’s not a complement!
Of course we have the tradition of shuhari in Japanese Budo, where a person eventually finds her unique interpretation of the art she practices after many long years of practice, but jadou is not a part of this at all. Jadou implies a complete lack of understanding of this concept. It means the exact opposite; a complete lack of understanding and proper instruction.
So please go back to your teacher, sifu, guru, sensei or whomever and have them polish your technique a little more. You and everyone else will be the better for it.
