what in the world is going on? because she can do 40 moves, and correctly answered a written test on human anatomy... she gets a 1st dan at 6 years old? 6-year-old becomes youngest schoolgirl in UK to be 1st dan karate black belt my biggest issue... is that a dan needs to understand a lot more then 40 techniques and answer test questions on anatomy. a dan should have a basic level of mastery. Which looking at the video.... she doesn't. Secondly, a dan in two years... is highly suspect. Thirdly, there is a basic level of maturity that i believe a dan should have. being able to understand what elements lead to a fight, and how to avoid a fight in the first place. ( stuff like de-escalation, threat awareness, conflict resolution, verbal communication skills... which a 6 year old does not possess yet) i have been pondering this specific case in England. The whole thing is a blight on traditional MA.
