Re: Philippine ranking and other stories

Unrelated to Aikido but interesting regarding ranking:

In my current gym the ranks are limited to only white, blue, purple, brown, and black, but since each apparently takes an exceptionally long time to achieve the non-black ones have been broken into four stripes, so, essentially 19 "kyu ranks" to be achieved.
