What are your thoughts of groups of people who gather and see someone do a demo and then call it a test and promote or recognize them as a master? Note: The system being demo'd is form a different culture and different system.
I can see TKD style a and then being tested in TKD Style B. As the styles or organizations are the major differences.
I can see Modern Arnis Org A recognizing a person in Org B. But as a recognition does this means they have cross ranked them?
If they do promote them in their org then that is fine as well. But one could possible jump from org to org to gain rank.
A demo is a demo.....not a test.
