    To answer your question, Gwen:

    Lurk more.

    Read the stickies.

    Essentially giving a black belt to a child is pure marketing with no thought towards demonstrating real martial skill (the ability to hurt someone else and/or prevent them from hurting you).

    Thusly we are faced with two possibilities: The instructor does not care if his students can protect themselves and awards advanced rank without this consideration; or the instructor is so delusional that he actually believes a black belt 6-year-old is capable of doing so.

    Both scenarios tell the discerning customer to run screaming.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Thanks, scrapper, my thoughts and questions were geared toward someone else about a different dojo than this. But thanks all the same.
