Re: What is Martial Arts Rank?

Your comments just strengthen belief that the koryu system of not having ranks, but only teaching licenses for various levels of the curriculum, is the right way. The whole dan rank thing was a huge mistake on Kano Shihan's part. All the questions and debate I see here vanish with a licensing system.
