    Because if you train right, Lloyd and Dalla argue there is no reason you can't get your belt in that amount of time.
    They're not the ones giving it to you though.

    Lloyd Irwin is no doubt a legit fighter and an excellent coach (his results speak for themselves), but his marketing practices drive me nuts.
    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    I think a lot of belt system martial arts work that way (the nonbullshido versions at least). I think the standard bar for master levels of competency is somewhere around 5th dan.
