Re: Brown Belts Seem To Be Cocky
There's another issue with brown belts in many systems: They're trying to be black belts. That means they're worried about impressing the people who'll promote them, so may want to focus their training efforts on people who can help them do that.
Then there's the issue of working with beginners: They do the damnedest things sometimes... You just never know what's gonna happen. They may not tap when they should, they may move in a way that they shouldn't... they can be a real dangerous challenge.
Put the two things together -- and it's easy to see that it could happen that a brown belt would avoid working with a beginner. Not defending it, but you can kind of see how it happens.
