    Ninjutsu / Taijutsu fail

    Ever wonder how easy it is to get your 2nd degree backbelt in Taijutsu, well look no further. This is a school in Eldersburg, Maryland called Tristar Martial Arts. They are near my Hapkido school and I swing by every once in awhile for a good laugh to watch them.

    This place is a joke and just a belt factory. They even have a banner on the back of the wall that says “This is a Black Belt School”
    Here is a link to the school if you want to check them out.

    This doesn't look like a test at all, but more of a demo / celebration...

    Now, it doesn't look like black belt techniques either. Just sayin'...

    So their belt tests take the form of a talent show? Awesome.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    This must have been a choreographed display/celebration/award ceremony after the grading. Funny they didn't have enough confidence in Taijitsu techniques not to fill it with what looks like Taekwondo; unless I've just seen unusual Taijitsu and everywhere else it looks like TKD!

    I would have said they looked more mid Kyu level, but long ago realised that a BB means nothing outside of a particular club/organisation.

    (I'm not slighting the efforts of the kids, they did everything that was asked of them and seem to be working hard; it's just that if the BB is there to give a sense of achievement, then it should be hard to get!)

    All of a sudden I feel like my TKD BB has slightly more merit.

    Now, I'm not taking anything away from your tkd blackbelt, since it may well be awesome, but just 'cause someone else blows doesn't say anything about your ability.

    Lmao. I thought Taijutsu didn't even have high kicks. Or at least that's what my sensei told me >.<.

    That was a test? Looked like a ceremony/display thing.
