I'm a newbie, so you may have covered this one. Could an advanced practictioner or group of practictioners "resurrect" a dead or dying system? I assume they would start with the "DNA" like theory, keywords, training methods, etc..., but would it be considered "traditional" or "modern"? Would it be necessary? Whatcha' think???
Yes! It happens more than one may think.
During the Cultural Revolution many arts were "rediscovered" so that there would be a renaissance in "traditional" CMA as part of the culture.
Is it traditional? I do not have an answer!
My only strategy is to have 10 people who studied with 1 main "traditional" teacher and have them do a form of that particular and see why they are all different and why. STuff happens, I know.
Better yet have 10 traditional teachers of the same style do the same thing and go from there!
