Outwardly, would agree. But it can still feel good to most old dogs to get on the floor and test.So personally, I feel like including any new forms at that level is pointless. Like I've mentioned tons of times, you should have enough material at first dan that there's no need to add extra past that. Including new forms. If there purpose is to demonstrate them at a test, that feels like a lost cause for MA. I agree at this point improvement isn't a physical thing, but based on your own students. I'm of the opinion belts past a certain point (imo black belt, but I understand some TKD styles gives black belts to 7 year olds so not specifying here), are there just to indicate your importance in the organization, not your actual combat or teaching ability.
