    Ha Ha,
    We all learned to cut fruit…and then eat it! HAH!
    We also all learned how to spend thousands of dollars to support a savvy Korean non-Zen master.
    Live in peace Sa Bu Nim!

      Oh come now, Ms. Shutz. There’s no need to be rude, even if you don’t believe a man cutting apples vertically off people’s stomachs without harming them after years of Zen training is legit.
