Re: Transfering Ranks Between Schools

Six months to a year is very little in terms of a lifetime of training so I wouldn't worry too much about "starting over." Many folks have done it after three, five or ten years whether due to geography, finding the right teacher, or redefining what they want from the art...if the goal is lifelong learning, the color of your belt or which knee goes down first when you roll isn't very important.
