Re: should there be an age for black belts?
thanks mathew, i agree with you in a sense. but if you are a 1st kyu
training for your shodan, dont you think it would be better to train with somone more your caliber. I also study gracie ju jitsu and my sensei Britt Knickerson wont even let you through him unless you are ofa senior rank. your right its goodfor senior ranks to get involeved from time to time with the younger ranks. but it also creats a gap for them. here they are training for shodan where none of the lower ranks will be involved.
