BSDaemon, take it as a gift. IMO, I think you should go to the brown belt shredders school(if he is teaching) and say hello.
You have a link on the school you used to attend? Or belt shredders school?

Belt slicing is on page 3.
Receiving this definitely made me feel honored. He basically told me that what I did in questioning the training methodologies was the right, and what his other student did to strip me of rank was wrong.
I'm moving to Boulder Colorado, no drawl, maybe a beard, concealed firearms: Definitely!

Do not feel "proud", because it is damn shame. If your old teacher was not giving this to you as a joke, then feel pity.Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.

You can argue that this style of Karate is inferior, and that bar for brown & black belts is too low, and I'll probably agree with those arguments. It is what it is though: it isn't much.
Go ahead and investigate Richard Weeks if you really care to. Here is his youtube:
These kata videos were from 1996 I believe:
YouTube - Kata
YouTube - Nihachen
YouTube - Black Belt Kata
Just keep in mind that I personally left this stuff behind a long time ago. I haven't done a kata for half a decade.
I'll be strapping on a white belt to resume my BJJ training in Colorado. I'm not turning into Lyoto Machida because of this, and You'll not find this black belt as part of an inflated MA resume.

If it was a "I feel bad" I'd be proud he admitted it and move on. It would be placed away in a box and never spoken of IMO.
Case by Case.
There is nothing on BSDaemon's 'honorary' black belt which indicates he is anything other than a a legitimate black belt who "has completed his necessary training and qualifications".

It was either that or break the old man's heart, and I just didn't have it in me.
