No problem.@daniel sullivan
thank you for suming this, i didn't know it until now! plus i practiced at home a lot..
for information, i stay no with it. i know it's maybe not so good for some serious organisation of tkd to give bb for ten months of training, and lots of people despise it. i don't want to put in question name of any organisation, instructor, or my self. i hope you understand it, and probably most of the people would act same.
Just to clarify: I do not advocate short periods from white to black belt. Generally, four years is considered about right in a traditional school (as opposed to a commercial school teaching a traditional art).
But I do not begrudge the student. If a student isn't ready and the instructor belts them anyway, that is on the instructor, not the student (in most cases).
But what is really important? Whether or not your instructor awarded you a first dan after ten months or how hard you train for the next ten months?
What you do with where you are is more important than how quickly you were given a black belt. From what you say, you train very hard and are very dedicated. Keep it up and enjoy!!
