I can understand the uneducated person on the street who has never heard of or barely seen any FMA's, to think that they might all be the same. What gets me is why do people from different art, and different systems, or locations from the PI assume that the names of simliar technqiues must all be the same? This is not a new thing, I have run into this a lot of times and places. Some people think that if person X calls it technique Y then all others must also, or they are not right or somehow not true to the arts or not teaching a valid system. Yes, A rose by any other name is still a rose, but doe the Frnech call it a Rose? Do the Spanish? Is it spelled differently? Just curious if I am the only one that thinks that those who have trained a while and possible obtained rank in systems that offer rank, to be aware that other people do things differently. Or similiar but by a different name.
