G'day all.

I get the impression from the majority of posts that there is a large number of instructors on the forum, compared to students (thats the impression anyway)

So what are you? if you fall into more then one category (eg instructor and student) answer the highest level or the level you mostly assume when posting

just thought it would be interesting to see the forums rank demographics.
what are you

LOL. Patience, Drew! Everyone is the USA was still asleep when you originally posted.

I put "currently inactive instructor", although I am an active BJJ student now. My highest rank was 2nd degree in AKK.

Hey...I just woke up and FA.com is the first thing on my agenda...that should count for something!

Generally, a Beginner (like it says in my profile) and unranked.

Specifically, been training 3 years under private instruction.

5th dan. Instructing for almost 10 years now. BUT I'm now and always a student. I learn daily from my students, and any instructor who takes the time to show me something.

That was for my aikido experience. I have a very dirty white belt as well as an out-of-date unearned yellow belt.

I am an active instructor, although I am currently without a school and teaching private sessions. I am a godan and have been a blackbelt for 16 years. However, I have learned more in the last 3 years with my current teacher than I learned in the previous 17 years of training. So 'student' would have been a good choice also.

I didnt really know what to put. So for rank I just put beginner because I am in my current kungfu school. But I was a junior black belt in Tae Kwon Do where I was a Sensei (shouldnt have been a sensei but cant change that).

3rd Dan. Teaching for ~ 10 years. Hopefully looking for that 4th Dan test in Feb. ( if I'm ready ) Which of course shows that everyone should be answering 'student' regardless of their belt rank.

1st dan for 1.5 years now. Been learning to teach the whole time, been teaching on my own for about 0.5 years now. I've been at my school for about 5 years now. I'm still more student (4 days a week) than teacher (2 days a week), but I find I probably answer 50-50 on these forums.
