Damn. Sorry, Xue. :(
Fair enough. Yeah, just this school.
Sure -- let's go for prepubescent. Before adolescence.
As for meaningless, I mean inter-dojo, across the art as a whole. Within one dojo, it...
Child + black belt = meaningless.
I'd say that a wireless lav is best for quality. Clip it to a t-shirt under the gi? Tape it to your hairy parts? Yow!
Lavalier mounting: Best...
