They are a member if the ITF, and I wanted to ask you all if there was any stadarization of curriculum in any federation, so that if you know techniques A, B, C you earn the belt that corresponds to it. I guess what i am trying to find out is that : let's say there are two schools next door to each other, and the both belong to the WTF. they both offer the same technigues, yet one has less belts to reach black than the other. Is there a stardization of how many belts there are, or is this just a business mans way of keeping your money longer? thanks.
    Sounds strange... ITF has 10 grades (gup) before 1st dan.

    I guess each organisation usually follows a standard but some schools might extend it a little to get more cash from grading fees and overpriced belts and whatnot.

    I personally think ten is too many as well, five would have been enough.

    Belts are required when going cyclic. Hard to sustain 850 rpm changing mags in your SAW.

    Or so I've heard.

    There is a pretty good article on here about ATA, belts and its teaching curiculum by a former ATA instructor.

    http://www.bullshido.net/modules.php...article&id=263

    It talks about block grading. For example, you learn three forms for your first three ranks and the school will only teach one form at a time. So you would have a white belt with a yellow belt learnning the same form. Kind of weird.

    You would expect that as you go up in rank you learn more difficult or more technical forms/kata but the block learning thing screws that up. Once again its all about the dollar and making the instructors job easier.

    Yeah, that hits close to home. Especially since I was the guy who carried the SAW around for my first 3 years in the military...yuck!

    By the way, I'm originally from Detroit myself.
