    People with Down Syndrome have an averige IQ of 50. Maximum IQ is 70.
    A normal person has an IQ between 100 and 110.
    A normal college level IQ is between 110 and 120.
    A normal university IQ is between 120 and 130.
    Averige life expectancy of persons with Down Syndrome is 50 years.

    Neither life expectancy or IQ will augment ever.
    So who really cares about a kid getting a (honory) black belt. He will never teach, open a school or give out belts and I'm quit sure that persons with an IQ of 100 or higher know that it's an honory black belt.

    That's all I'm pointing out. We all fit things in to fit our parameters.

    That's quite obvious isn't it? I mean it is a very interesting glimpse into the contradictions people live with from day to day.

    Well I'm not worried about sounding un-PC on this website, so...

    1) Since when does having a BB mean you are an "expert"? Only on TV news.

    2) I'm of the humble opinion that this guy is trying to get free publicity for his dojo

    In fairness - it IS Detroit. He's probably got a higher IQ than the general population.

    He's got to be smarter than the fucking mongoloids that voted for Kwame.

    Not you, Asperger's- it's on a different scale, and you know it.
    Different scale. Different altogether? Please.

    I can certainly relate to the basics. And you know what, I wouldn't wish that kid feel-good bullshittery. It's something to give him a slap on the back for his efforts. It's another thing completely to give him and his folks a straight message that he isn't as good as others and will never be.

    Belt ranks are only valid within their own contexts. I've known people with dan ranks who, IMO, couldn't actually fight their way out of a Chinese retaurant.

    The worst of that "story" was the condescending cliches strung together by the reporters.

    the reporter narration made me cringe the whole way through. You think people would research this but no.

    As for the kid, don't give him a black belt if he does not deserve it. Yes its cruel but I would not do it without making him work his butt off. I would want him to at least be able to defend himself long enough to get away, and be in good physical condition before he gets the belt. Maybe throw in some mannerisms for good measure

    So yes my standards are lower, but It will still push the kid to his limit

    I suppose it depends on what people think a black belt is for.

    If it is designed to impress other people take it off him.

    If it is a recognition of your own achievment let him keep it.

    I never got "the to defend themselves" bit how do we set a standard on that?
