Well you are just kid, I suppose kids are a lot more prone to making mistakes than adults. Just one question why does your school award black belts to kids under 18 years of age.

Don't most systems have the requirement set as 18 to test for BB. I know you can get a junior BB at 16 in my school.

hmm...-frown- there are multiple things in that story that don't seem right...

just to let you know, its much easier to use a full stop than an exclamation mark. 1 key instead of 2

saw the video on the website...looks like the vanilla slap-tag sparring we've unfortunately come to expect with Shotokan clubs. http://www.centraldojo.co.uk/html/film.htm
The over-reaching on strikes is the dead givaway...sometimes the rear leg is off the floor - it's no wonder you got swept if you are doing sparring like this.

The 1st Kyu test on that website looks about as hard as our 9th test.

Hey, mind if but in?
No?
Excellent!
I am of the opinion that not everyone has a supreme zen philosophy that they adhere to. Yes there are some black belts that are not the beacon of light that people have come to expect (because of movies). In MAs there are characters of all sorts and there are the greedy ones, the evil ones, the kind one, the suckers etc etc.
My point is that this guy lost control whilst fighting a junior student. First of all he is not (age wise) that much more refined than the kid he beat anyway. Secondly it probably serves as a lesson to the yellow belt who picked him again no to get too cocky. I also agree that you shouldnt lose your temper or composure especially if you have the supposed BB discipline. I dont know if the BB is in a McDojo or not, nor do I care to judge. Each school I haverealised has its own methods and like the students most teachers are not the same and are not all masters of their art.
Are you larning MAs?
Do you enjoy it?
Are you developing your body and mind?
Those are the important questions for a teenager.
It is after you reach a certain level of understanding that you are fit to choose what style and what school and what attitude is good. Who are we to tell kids that santa clause is dead?

There is/was no Santa Clause. Telling them he's dead only prolongs their illusions.

Much like giving black belts to a 12-year old.

Thats great Magr and is relavent for kids under 10.

When kids are old enough to ask the right questions, I tell them Santa is based on a real person, 'saint Nicolas' who lived more than 1,500 years ago and had the reputation of gift giving. dead? or alive? I let them decide, but if asked, I say I believe while his body is very dead, his spirit is very much alive.

are not Master pre-teen and teen black-belts already artificially inflated enough to where we have to perpetuate the illusion? How many gifts does a kid need to recieve on Christmas in order to understand it's spirit?
