Lame-o,

It took me more than a year to reach green-belt.
I also do not kick above the waist.
I'd post a video if I could so you can judge my kata.lol.

Ed has it right.

Lame,

If any of my students were as arrogant and disrespectful as you, they'd wind up having the hardest knuckles in the state.

LDH - I don't get your name - do you hate "lame dojos" or are you a lame "dojo hater" hmmmm

I agree with everything the others have said. Rank is not that important. You seem too caught up with competing with everyone around you and way to focussed on "wow I started 6 months after him and we're both the same rank, How good am I" Ignoring the fact that as you progress up the ranks it takes longer and longer to achieve the next belt so most people who start within a year of each other will end up the same rank eventually. You have not yet realised that training in martial arts is an idividual journey. You must work together with your fellow students but ultimately it is about bettering yourself, not a race to the next belt. No matter who gets there "first", your green belt is no better or worse than anyone elses. The belt just denotes a minimum level of proficiency in an individual style. Oh, and the guy who got his green belt before you does outrank you (since rank is so important to you)
As for kicks above the waist - my head instructor has been training for over 40 years - he had a serious accident several years ago and now cannot kick above his waist but I have a feeling he'd still kick your a$$!
I'm assuming that you are still young, but consider focussing on your own training, not everyone elses, and a dojo works better if everyone is trying to help each other out, not bit$$ing about each other behind people's backs.

Your feeling is right of course; the A$$ is below the waist

I agree, its been about 10 months for me and I'm going to be testing for Orange Belt soon. Well, I guess it is only one class a week. My main instructor is also my high school principal and he has a roughly 30 minute class, every day, all year available for 11th and 12th graders. I'm in 10th grade, so I can't take it yet, although a few lucky students in my grade got in somehow this year.

Haha - You got me there.
But his A$$ would hurt pretty bad after a low, below waist a$$ kick from my instructor!

lol this thread cracks me up.

1 dude who everyone laughed at (sry) but he never cut his toe nails and once he cut the sensei and made him bleed cuz his nails were really that long. this same guy shakes like CRAZY, fights like hes on crack, its so funny the whole dojo tries so hard not to laugh.

this other dude gets on my nerves, seriously, he cant fight , but he gets points for YELLING PSYCHO-LOUD, but he doesnt even make contact. he'll throw 2 punches that miss n yell like 9 times. it gets on my nerves.

Student: one who has a desire to learn, to explore, to study and understand a body of knowledge.

There was a fellow who was literally quite lethal in several signature techniques. He had honed them to an exquisit breathtaking degree. Once he achieved that level of sharpness however... he had a strong irresistable need to SHOW people them, whether appropriate, necessary or otherwise...

~...Hi Aragorn... haven't seen you for a while, how are you doing... how's Jane, the kids..."

"... all fine... great... how's YOUR backfist (eyes lighting up body throwing the proverbial switches in preparaition of showing you his dangerous technique...)"

Ugggh.

When I was in highschool I wrestled my sophomore year to my senior year. At the begining of every season we would have 40 or 50 people come out and a month later we'd thin down to about half that. There were two guys who stuck out in my mind.

I remember one guy who wrestled in my weight class every day he would complain about the conditioning and be upset with the fact he could hardly ever take me down. He quit a few months into the season.

I remember some annoying kid who would do nothing but talk during the coach's instruction. He quit within a few weeks.
