This reminds me of something my sensei said as he changed after the Saturday class. We were talking about rank and things of the like, and he said:

"You know, the hakama and black belt really don't mean what people think they do. I'd just as quickly come in here with a white belt, as long as I could train."

That made me really good about my training and my sensei who teach me.
