Folks,
I am currently teaching 7 people. 6 of them began in october. One of our styles weird quirks one is that you begin with no belt at all. It's just you in your big floppy gi or sweatsuit. My folks tested this weekend and did very well. They will be getting White belts tonight. It is funny, It almost feels like Christmas eve. I am excited to present them and they seem excited to recieve them. I feel that the belts are a marker or a milestone of what we have done together. On a fun note, I going to be giving my white belt to my son.

Congrat's on your son and all other students earning their first rank!

Maybe this time your son won't cringe when you "give him the belt".

What I was getting at is, when all of the blackbelts are together, we know who is who and who we are there to train under. For beginners, it is merely a matter of them showing respect to any blackbelt. They will eventually learn who deserves more respect.

White to indicate beginner, green or blue to indicate intermediate, then black to show advanced.

Then you get someone who adds stripes to everything. White withone, two, three. Blue with nice colored stripes. Maybe some nice red and white ones. Do you think people will give up those increments?

Hello Oldman:

<<My folks tested this weekend and did very well.

Tremendous congradulations...!

<<I feel that the belts are a marker or milestone of what we have done together.

And let us hope there are many more beautiful ones to come.

<<On a fun note, giving my white belt to my son.

Yikes, hopefully an adult/teen yes (imagining something from a spoofed mummy movie otherwise )???

Hello DaDoN_1:

I've waited YEARS to find someone with your specific background of "belt reverence" (Jeff excited like a little kid)

What was the "ritual" when your belt came loose?

What happened when the "belt" ever touched the floor?

What happened if you required hydration?
Not eating with it on ok, but I won't sit down to dinner in my uniform on either. Pure pragmatism, avoidable mess!

What happens I don't know if as a medical emergency you require a soda? All kinds of what if scenerios, but dying to hear how the first two especially got handled...

Jeff
