Perhaps a belt requires more stripes to maintain structural integrity under the strain of teh deadly "soke belly"...

Certainly explains the use of wider "instructor's" belts. . . .

I started looking through the list of members and I could not find a single school that someone was certified in that actually made sense. Most of the names were ripe with misused japanese terms and fake ranks.................
Not that I am suprised, I just know that if anyone is in the states and doesn't do MMA, Bjj or some other art with regular, full on competition, your chance of doing bullshit is far to high for comfort.

I have been training for over 20 years. I have fought in the ring..and soon the cage. I own a dojo. i have had the same teacher for 16 years since leaving the mcdojo. I have been promoted to 6th dan and did not ask for the promotion nor did i ever think i would reach that high (and still don't think I am at that level.) But i train every day and have since 1990. How in the hell can anyone find the time to train in 5 or six different arts, get above 4th and 5th dan in any of them, and still find time to work, sleep and eat.
All these basterds walking around with multiple masters ranks in arts from differnt countries of origin. I can see a kendo-ka also having high rank in Iado. they kindof go together. But having a masters rank in TKD and Suri-ryu? WTF ever.
I especialy like how they make thier own linage and at no point will you find an asian master from the homeland. Wow. Larping at its finest.

Indeed . . . indeed.
Again, the only "senior" rank he has is self-created . . . his students begged he take . . . not a godan . . . not a rokudan . . . not even a nanadan . . . but a hachidan.
Fortunately, for his integrity, he refused the kudan . . . at least this month.
I know it will come to some surprise that no one in Uechi has heard of this guy. . . .
Why is that? Because if he continued to claim rank from a "recognized" organization he would continue to be "outed."

"It is almost as bad as claiming to teach the "original" Tae Kwon Do . . . from 2,000 years ago!"
...and of course since TKD has only really been around for 50 years or so that would
be laughable in and of itself.
PS - Back off on the Canadian jokes! I resemble that comment and I only have a yellow belt in Seal Wrestling.

Canada? What state is that in?
Flees flying . . . flying . . . flying . . . hockey pucks. . . .
Heck, I have heard some young'uns claim kata is "thousands of years old." Evidence? "Sensei says!" Sure. . . .

I wonder if we should invite the Grand Soke Schultz to our discussion to answer questions
