Re: Children transitioning to adult class.

I'm inclined to agree with Don -- there's a lot of danger in using the belt system as an easy way to solve a difficult problem (that of retention). At some point the kids have to learn to love what they're doing for its own sake -- if they don't, as soon as the "carrot" of a new colored belt is gone, they'll be gone too.
