    I say give everyone a white belt, no other belts except Black.
    When do you get your black ?
    When you can match up with Black belts, consistently, wither that takes 1 year, 5 years or 10 years.
    Or maybe like Oyama though about it, for your Black, when you can survive a match with 5 Black belts, you're a Black.


    As for being the "head" of an organization, who the **** wants that ???

    Yeh, how long do these kumite fights last? And by survive do you you mean still standing?

    Make em 2 minutes each for a 5 man & 10 man kumite, make them 1 minute for 30 man and 50 man, and make them "match ends with knockdown" in the 100 man kumite, and by survive I mean still standing, yes.

    You are a mine of useful information about bare knuckle fighting.

    Thanks again.

    Edit: Damn, that sounds so arse licking. :angry7:

    Those are "rough rules", they kind of change from dojo to dojo and organization to organization.

    The Japanese regimented mind set / school system that produced the kyu/dan system does seem silly. I think white/green/brown/black would be ok. Or maybe just wait for your white belt to darken and turn black!!

    Who wants to be head of an organization? Here's the reason (besides prestige and blow jobs from ma groupies!): 1,000,000 Kyokushin members X $10 yearly dues = $10,000,000.

    For instance I belong to Universal Kempo Karate Schools Organization and pay $20 a year for that privilege. It also costs $50 a month for lessons. So assuming that the 90 branches each have @ twenty five members, that's 25 X 90 X 20 = +$50,000. That I can work out when I'm in Hawaii with a fun group in a well run school is great. If Proffesor Buell gets some dough, good for him. I don't begrudge people making money for good service, it's just the bullshit that offends me.

    The lineage is Mitose/Chow/Emperado/ Thomas/Seronio/Reyes/ Godin/Buell/Instructor Eric (smooth fast 6th Dan)/ ME! I like the sense of what/where/who, and the history, so in a way I don't agree with "Belts = Gradings = Lineage = Politics = waste of valuable traing time = loss of decent instructors / fighters."

    You mean able to get back up, right?

    So what if these guys over in Japan with too much time on their hands start going crazy.
    Does it make us better fighters ? No.

    Just train.
    This is Bullshido. I can post whatever I want. I can say '**** you' to Phrost (and I can say thank you very much for a forum where I can say that, thanks Phrost! )

    I train plenty. I spent @15 years in Kyokushin, and wear my Kyokushin embroidered gi proudly. If I'm not a member and that bothers someone, they can take it off me. :thebirdma

    I'm not saying Matsui is right/wrong/fucked up or anything else. I am interested in history and martial arts politics happen to be part of this. That it is a somewhat unpleasant topic is true, but so is the study of slavery or the Holocaust.

    So what's your point? this is mine:
