"There is no 'instant pudding' black-belt qualification in Aikido (or other martial arts). Success comes through practice. That practice invariably focuses on fundamental techniques that aren't always fancy but are necessary to be effective. Success comes through commitment to the techniques and by applying them wholeheartedly.

Likewise, there is no 'instant pudding' solution to problems with the quality of information. Success comes to those who practise."
