Is it the kid or the kick?

If you want to start huge debate (or barroom brawl..) just ask a bunch of instructors what criteria should be used to call someone a quality Black Belt.

2 years or 5 years?  Forms or no forms? Sparring? Board breaking?

Seems like there is very,very little agreement on what is a quality Black Belt.

Personally, I know schools that are financially strong, but I see weak Black Belts,and I can’t accept that standard as to what they think a Black Belt looks like.

That’s on me.

Some school owners will say quality doesn’t matter, just teach lifeskills and get paid.

Others say their students need to train ten years and fight biker gangs to get a Black Belt.

Me? I follow the advice the late Grandmaster Jhoon Rhee gave me and many others:

“Not everyone is an athlete, they all can’t jump and spin in the air, but…they can all learn to snap to attention to show control, they all can learn to execute the basic’s at a high level to defend themselves, they can all learn to be respectful and live the martial arts lifestyle”

It’s the kid AND the kick.

And that my friends is the best advice I ever got about becoming a Black Belt.
