Yamcha's old martial arts teacher had been very fond of old sayings and stories. So fond of them, that now
Yamcha was sure that the old man had made up a few himself. Day after day, the young student had listened to so many of them
being repeated that he certainly wouldn't be surprised if someone told him that he had been reciting them in his sleep.
Back then he had hung onto each and every word. Now he found himself questioning and disagreeing with some
of the things that he had been told. In particular, the view that a warrior should stay away from women because they were
nothing but a distraction.
Bulma was not a distraction. She was something that drove him on and was worth fighting for.
