Re: Adult Ranks for Children

Teenagers (say 14-15 and up) train with adults at our dojo, not with kids. They are expected to meet the same standards for testing and for conduct in class: if they don't show signs that they're progressing under their own power, rather than needing to be dragged and prodded to train or to do techniques correctly (or at least try their best), they wouldn't be testing. Honestly, it is more than most teenagers are up for, but it's what's best for them if they're going to be training.
