Well the little little kids like 4-9 or so I think can have as many patches as they can earn.We also make them have white gi's so the ones that really have accumulated a ridiculous amount of patchs eventually have to start all over and there are just not as many opportunities for the older groups (and less interest) and it doesn't get ridiculously out of control.

The little kids love the patches though.

Hello Hardluck:

<<Well the little little kids like 4-9 or so I think can have as many patches as they can earn.

Ok, and you see (literally) no problem with that many patches ? If I understand the concept correctly (?) I regret that is a perspective I have tremendous trouble with...! How does one then prevent the pursuit of billboard/quiltish displays???

<<..it doesn't get ridiculously out of control... The little kids love the patches though.

By definition, needing another uniform solely in order to accomodate ones excessive patches....? (ie Not due to having become too small, not due to wear etc.) Forgive me, by definition I would submit that is the definition of ~completely out of control~... respectfully

Would they demonstrate XYZ behavior without the proverbial ~sticker~ approach??? Clearly one might extrapolate a parallel between colored belts being identical to patches in many respects, but I would contend that is a severely flawed parallel. The belts have a literal function, keeping the jacked closed. They provide a anatomical landmark (ie "kick ABOVE the belt..."). Whether used as an incentive or not, the belt is dignified ie... there is only ONE per person, common to all students, etc. I would contend it is a bad parallel at very best....

Merely my opinion, for whatever it might be worth,

J (Aware they like patches but not going to ~give in~ )

Hi Ronin,

My response is a bit late!

Sensei has 8 patches on his gi, I know 1 is for attendance, another is for remembering names of other children & names of techniques. I`ll find out what the rest are for when he has a free moment, (if ever).
The smallest children can also earn stars to stitch onto their uniforms. They earn these by sitting properly, paying attention etc, needless to say there are`nt many stars on display!

Kids in Martial Arts

Hopefully I'll get around to adding more training games soon...
