The question of the day is, “What is a black belt?”
This question came up after reading Dagney’s comment on “Horizitonal vs Verticle” . The post itself brought up the fact that some schools practically sell Black Belts to the highest bidder, so to speak. I was wondering how other people define the black belt. What qualities do they think a black belt should embody? Have they ever come across a black belt who was less than honorable? I think this information would be important to anyone looking for a school / instructor, so please elaborate as much as possible. Your point of view is very much appreciated, thank you.
