Plus add the 10 years to get to first degree to make it 40 years.47MartialMan said:Given that at every 3 years, than someone can get 10th dan in 30. Per if it is a matter of skill and not years, I know of some lower ranks whom can best higher ones. The simple fact is that some can have higher skill than others in shorter amount of time. Should they be rank the same or higher than those with many more years, but have lesser skill?
But that formula dosen't work in the higher Dans. Joe Moreira was a 6th Degree when I met him in 1998 and still is a 6th degree. Same with Rickson, been a 7th maybe as long as Joe's 6th. Rorion and Reylson have been a 9th degre for a long tome too.
I think the 3 year formula is only early on in the low Dans.
