My views on Gregs comments about Tim Waid not holding on to his stick. I believe that the point Greg was making is that he is still developing in his art, regardless of the fact that he is being shunned by others. That he is able to disarm many stick players. I have witnessed it myself. Being the controversial figure that Greg is... he is being entertaining in his own way and also calling attention to himself. He creates controversy by these statements... and then sees what response there is? perhaps I would imagine that Greg feels left out these days...and after much of the groundwork that he helped to pave with the Filipino and Indonesian Arts in the beginning. Way before most of us knew anything about this, Greg was Very Very Active and took it upon himself to help lead the way to promote these arts. Maybe sometimes it isn't appreciated...the way he does his thing, but Greg really is a nice guy and means no harm to anyone...He has stated that many times, and in many ways, when we had conversed. Greg does have some impressive skills and development nontheless.
