A samurai once asked Zen Master Hakuin where he would go after he died.
Hakuin answered 'How am I supposed to know?'
'How do you not know? You're a Zen master!' exclaimed the samurai.
'Yes, but not a dead one,' Hakuin answered.
For us as martial artists, the point is that we only truly "know" anything through physical experience. If not real-world conflict, then dedicated partner practice with steadily increasing resistance. "Knowledge" contained in theory or opinion only is not knowledge, it's guesswork.
