Beyond Style 3

This is a story.

Two Karate students from different styles were about to engage in a match.

Before they began, the first student said: "My style is far better than yours. My master is more well known, our dojo is bigger, we have more students worldwide, we are better than you in every way!"

The second student said nothing.

When the match began, the second student walked right in and punched the first student on the nose. The match was over.

When he was helped up from the ground by the referee, the first student asked, "What, what happened?"

The referee replied, "Your style may be great but your Karate is terrible."
