    He named one of his kid's after a penis so I believe this must be retribution.

    Munchkin black belts are silly.

    Karate schools that don't suck don't generally confer a title of "sensei" until a nidan or sandan rank is achieved -- usually 10 years or more of training. Black belt does not equal sensei.

    I don't have a problem with a modicum of tradition -- the use of sensei, for example -- as long as it doesn't become the overly formalized, American pseudo-military crap blended with misunderstood Japanese culture/customs -- which invariably becomes wacky "sensei-worship."

    I checked out the school's Web site -- interesting place. Looks like "a great place to learn dance *and* McDojo karate.

    Oh -- and for the record -- I seem to recall Peter Urban was or became a nutjob at some point... and he's the guy that gave the head instructor all his black belt rankings...

    I've been training longer than those two little boys and the only people who ever call me "sir" are flight attendants.

    Everyone who first joins Judo is told to call all the teachers "sir" but when you start hanging out at the bar and they turn into "Jeff" or "Assbitch" then it's tough to go back. Honestly none of them give two shits about it either, it's just USJA regs and the like. (Such as in tourney, EVERYONE becomes "Sir" "Ma'am" "Your Grace" etc)

    In the Kyokushin Class I just joined we have "Nick" (the sensei) and "Hey You" (the people who I can't remember their names yet) It's figured with that nice black belt of his is the only one in the room it's sort of assumed he's the ringleader.

    From their site under pictures and then Purple belt testing:
    "Adults and Children are Equal."

    That's it... as soon as my kid can walk he is getting a job and if he causes trouble we are getting in the ring and solving it like men. OMG...

    If you go their as an adult to sign up, make sure you get in the kid's class. Tell them it's all the same and I would bet you could dominate the sparring!

    It's complicated. It involves M-theory, temporal tectonics, and a Bartlett pear. I wish I could tell you more.
