Re: What's your thoughts?
True... When my Jujutsu instructor heard Sensei was removing me of rank all he said was " Ya know as part of the advacement ritual I always tell my students: when I put this belt on you, no one can remove it. No One can take away the hard work and training you've done to accomplish this." I myself always told the students in the dojo when they asked me "why aren't I going for a grading"...or "why can I throw everyone but that brown belt! I'm a green!" , that "the only thing a belt is good for is holding you gi shut and your pants up! It's the skill you have and the heart to back it up that counts. Never think a color or rank makes you that rank."
