Question: If the head of a style/system is known as the Grandmaster and then promotes himself with a new title such as Great Grandmaster or Supreme Grandmaster, does it mean he attained more knowledge of his own style/system? And then when the head of the style/system makes his students or whoever a Grandmaster of his style/system does that mean they have the knowledge that he had when he was a Grandmaster?

Really like this opinion I think he's got it...I spent along time NOT liking the term master because I looked at it as flawless and that in martial arts it should be about constant and never ending improvement, no ever knows it all so how could you be a master? however after 39 years now of training in several systems I've been introduced so many times as such I've come to accept it. but know that there is still always room to grow and get better. even at my age and health problems I still push on. thanks another great topic

I always liked the writing style of Master Mustafa Gatdula, a combination of tell it like it is, inherent wisdom and issue a challenge. Always good reading from an "old school" master. Thank you Guro Joven for adding Master Gatdula's blog to this discussion. If readers can overcome the offenses (the truths) expressed in this blog there are many guidelines wtitten here that if followed will make one a great teacher/master.
