Paraphrasing Alan Watts

You can be loyal to your style or sensei just as you are loyal to your own country but you are not serving your country if you think that it’s necessarily the best of all possible countries—that is doing a disservice to your country! It is refusing to be critical where criticism is proper. So of Karate—every style should be self critical, otherwise it soon degenerates into a self righteous hypocrisy.
