    Coveted Black Belt Rank-Overated?

    I cant stand people to flash the rank as a means to make high profit with low morals.

    Like a 8 year old black belt-etc.

    Is the rank over-rated?

    I think this topic is over-discussed.

      yes, it is
      "Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration." -A. Lincoln

        Yeah, it's just too bad all of Gravedigger's posts are actually burned onto stone tablets by the flaming sword of Gabriel himself, then mailed to Phrost to be converted into forum code under the name "Gravedigger". -Boyd :love2:

            If only I could gather a DeLorean and a flux capacitor, I'd ask Doc Brown to navigate you to the red and yellow days of McD****.com

              not neccessarily, a BJJ black belt is still a status symbol. Even a mcdojo wont give one till after 4 years.

                Nowadays a BB is "system related".

                A BB in WTF TKD is one thing, a BB in Kyokushin is another.
                A BB in judo is one thing, a BB in BJJ is another.

                Not better or worst, just different.

                Remember, unless you cross train, you are only training to fight people with the same system you are practicing.

                The only way to truly evaluate someone is to SEE them, regardless of belt.

                I know a few fighter/MA, that no longer wear belts, period, and I know some that have alot of pride in wearing theirs.

                But, on a whole, Belts are NOT a good indicator of fighting prowess, and, from what it seems lately, they are also not a good indicator of technical skill either.

                Too bad really.
