This really is bullshit. If I had children, and they wanted me to call them "sir", there'd be some good old spanking, for fucks sake.

I won't call KP2 or Pee Wee Praxx 'sir' until they can physically force me to...and if they ever do, they will be looking for somewhere else to live.

hell, i teach kids, and they call me by my first name. respect is earned, not given because someone is forced to call you sir, or sifu, or sensei or anything else.
i'm sure that the military types would disagree.
and it's absurd that the dad has to call his kids sensei in the dojo... kiddie ranks are just that, kiddie ranks.

I don't mind calling my teacher sifu, sensei or whatever the **** else they want to be called but when I asked my Judo teacher if I should call him Sensei he said "You can call me what you like! You can call me prick if you really want!"

wait, since when did you have to call every black belt 'sensei' or 'sir'? or do these two kids also, godforbid, teach?
Nicholas is New York Goju Karate's youngest student ever to get to the black-belt level. He and Jon Thomas completed the grueling test to get their black belts together.
It is five hours long where the katas, or forms, have to be done in perfect unison in front of shihan Chellemi. The test also incorporates different weapons.
So basically they have a black belt in synchronised kata.

From their pictures page, in pictures of their black belt testing http://mail.onhudsonfitness.com/blackpics.htm the 5th picture down on the left, I could swear that that looks just like Ashida Kim did in that youtube video of him... It's all becoming clear now.
