I agree with a lot that is here but really think rank is arbitrary and ultimately meaningless if you aren't focused on improving and getting better and helping your students get better. I take a very "put up or shut up" approach to it all. I don't care how many stripes you have on a belt, or what title a piece of paper says you have. The mat doesn't lie. Get on the floor and show me, explain things to me, share with me and I will share with you. Not all black belts are equal and that's okay. Fun fact; Vovinam, a martial art heavily influence by Korean arts, has no black belt. The highest rank is white.
