To be fair to DA, that's clearly not what he's saying. He said any grade 'above about third dan' wasn't a fighting grade and was awarded for 'services rendered' to martial arts. And that's exactly true. Or are you under the impression that the few real Judans in the world are the deadliest men alive?

Trained with moclair when I was younger and what a waste of time and money it was. I paid £20 an hour for private lessons as I worked nights. (Yes I know now ok) All attacks were practiced in slow motion! There were no resistance from attacker's!! And never spared in two years!!! Was lucky enough to get the chance to spar with a boxing coach and soon realised that I had wasted two years learning something that was useless. The most embarrassing thing is the arsehole really had me believe that I could fight off 5 attacker's at once. ( yes I know now) this clown will get some poor kid killed with the fake confidence he fills people with.
