Although I was born and raised in Southern California - I sometimes feel affinity for the “Show Me” state of Missouri. I’ve often gone ‘against the grain’ of traditional thought - to examine issues myself - and I don’t always agree with the common consensus. In Judo, for example - I argue against the traditional form of Osoto-Gari. Those reading my blog here might well be familiar with that example.
“If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down.” - Darwin
