Although some have their doubts, I know the truth, and I intend to uphold it.
as people say, haters gonna hate.
^^^^^ this and there are many here who are BB level and above in multiple arts. As stated here that doesn't make us any better a person or martial artist than someone else...Just someone who has multiple BBs.I think what prompted us to have a bit of fun with this thread is that we're not too hung up on belts and ranks here. In other words, very few of us care about rank. We're mostly mature adults who train because we love it, not because we love rank.
You walked in and more or less said "I'm a black belt, are you?" and left it at that. What did you think was going to happen? Did you think that was going to give you instant street credibility?
I had a black belt 15 years ago. Had to stop training. Now I'm back and started all over again just over two years ago. Doesn't make me a better person nor worse person. Doesn't make me a better or worse karateka than anyone else.
