    The age of the instructor doesn't tell you when they started training. A guy just out of college could have a decade of experience, while the archetype old bearded Asian man could've started last year when his doctor said he should get some exercise.

    Thats because Dan is a Jap term. Which is why I was sarcastic to him, as I think he's a kiddy BB.

    If you're a 2nd degree and you're only halfway through highschool, your school would probably promote you to 3rd well before you're done with college.

    So, when did you start training?

    I know that a junior black belt is call poom (or pum), what is a adult black belt? Yudanja? Il dan/cho dan (for first Dan)?

    Sorry if I got it wrong, that info is from wiki.

    the only reason I used the term dan is because our school uses the term degree, which appears to not be in use by most other schools so i was just trying to use the term that most people used.

    I first started training when i was 6, but have moved and had to start over twice.

    Juggernoob, our school doesnt use a junior black belt rank, but im not really even sure what your trying to imply, explain please? or are just being sarcastic for the fun of it? (which i could understand lol)
