Does rank mean all that much? Two of the best people I've ever played with are still nidans.They are capable of explaining difficult concepts to beginners.
Sorry I meant it a more of a joke.
Yeah they're NIDANS
I am a Nidan long over due for a promotion to at least Godan
LOL ( Money and A New Dojo would help) So rank doesn't not mean all that much but in my experience a Shodan knows the basics that's it...and it seems the poster has a question about how that knowledge is being transmitted.
