The word “master”, somewhat like “saint”, loses its value when self-applied. To claim to be an “expert” is fine, but “master” should only be used by others to describe you, if they so choose. To those who understand this, it is folly to claim to be a master of anything or anyone.

As for me, I am a tai chi expert.
