    Yes. I support that.

    She started doing tournaments when she was 9, and shes 11 years old with a 4th degree black belt?!?!? My father is a fourth degree black belt in Judo and it took him 30 years of training and competition. I have done Judo for 14 years and I'm not a black belt. Her black belt means nothing she just walks around pretending to be tough.

    i've said it once, but I guess I can be bothered to say it again. Black belt !=tough. All it means is that she completed what's required of her for that rank. I am against young black belts whole heartedly, but saying her bb means nothing is pretty silly. And for the record it took me 11 years to get my bb in limalama.

    That's true, but when you give a kid a black belt they think that means they are tough.

    Someone who is taught to scare someone off guard and run away...she reminds me of Forest Gump.

    I was coming home tonight from work late, and the "dojo on the corner" had just let out and multiple young children wearing black belts were coming out from class as I drove by, and I was reminded of this thread again.

    We have junior black belts here at the Seidokaikan Hombu and when they get big enough to join adult class, they put on a yellow belt and come to adult class. Some of the junior high school kids who are right on the line do both classes and change belts every time.
    It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.
