I dont really know how to answer that. For my age, I am a long term student. However, in my current school I am in the lower half. But I in my previous schools I was a junior black belt and about half way in the last school. So I guess I would be low ranked, if I was comparing myself to some of the older people.

Beginner. My highest rank is 1st Dan WTF TKD, although that is probably not recognised anymore.

I'm proud to say that in the middle of next year I'll have been a beginner at martial arts for 20 years. I post as a (probably perpetual) beginner.

This is my profession, my "day job". As to my rank/ranking... it is irrelevent outside of the group to which I happen to belong. So I did not include it... for many fundamental reasons. Some are badly influenced/impressionable/swayed due to rank or ~ranking~. To avoid that problem I avoid posting rank/ranking.

My words will stand on their own merit not falsely influenced or bolstered by any rank.
