    People often tell me that I fail to see the gravity of the situation.

    Wandered over to awma.com, the only pic I can find:

    I'm sure a McDojo/McDaycare somewhere uses them.
    In my pee-wee class, they have to EARN thier white belts. Once they earn them, they graduate to the regular program. Part of the requirement to graduate from white to yellow- no matter what age the student is, is to tie thier belt. This is not to test thier knot-tying ability, but it puts responsibility into thier hands and takes it out of thier parents. When a kid forgets thier belt (or pants, or jacket, or whatever), I hold them to the same standard of responsibility that I do adults. I have loaner belts, and they cost 50 to 200 push ups to rent- depending on color.

    It is one thing for a parent or instructor to help tie a kids belt to insure that it is tight enough, but it is entirely another to make it velcro so that they don't even have to try.

    I could almost forgive it if they limited the belts to white and yellow. But all the way to black? Gimme a fucking break.

    The only positive thing I found in the catalog was that these belts are on a closeout. Maybe even the McDojo operators saw this and said "now this is going to far."

    I guess i can see about not wanting you nuts to get creamed, but what is the point of haveing shin, upperleg, torso, hand, forearm, bicept/tri, & head gear?

    Go to protect those Dim Mak points or we would have instructors dropping left, right and centre.

    I hear the suit also offers protection against no-touch KO and mormons.

    For students that are striking you with either bare-knuckles, shoes, weapons, etc.

    The idea is that you can fight several students in a full power SD type fight and allow them to cut loose on you and you don't get killed in the process.

    I would have thought that to be fairly obvious.

    Damn- I've been a member for almost 4 years and finally broke 100 posts.
