    My son Noah(7), has been doing judo for 8months. It's too early for him to be hitting and kicking others, although he knowws how. I think judo is the best place for young-uns to start.
    Hannah is 5, she's into dance and singing!! :)

    Love me my kiddos!!! :cool:

    Our school is informal. It wasn't really a test per say, but a right of passage that had to be to receive the rank.

    I survived, so I passed,lol.

    I have taught goju for several years. When a student is ready for their next rank you will know it. I simply gave students their next rank when they were ready. The 'testing' is in the everyday dedication to training and learning.

    I understand how some martial arts schools do business though. They give little Johnny Firecracker a test every few months with the flavor of the month belt and a hefty "testing fee" lol.There are no testing fees and it isn't a commercial school.

    That's why you see soke's and grandmasters on every corner, not to mention 25yr old 5th and 6th dans,lol.

    I like it the way we do it. :cool:

    true that brian.. i have seen some of those 25yrd 5 dans. judo is a cool art that i always wanted to learn more of. i took Brazilian jujitsu, goju and learned a lot of second hand kung fu from a friend that i spared with a lot. pretty much just taking fundamentals with me that i use all the time. as well i slowly teach my 4 year daughter things all the time. just falling correctly and some wrist breaks for the past couple of years.

    Talking about "dans" has me a little worried. Like, where in line do I come in?

    I hated the "forms" in Tai Kwon Do, I could never remember them and always felt like they were to much like dancing, we had to take tests on them and I never did well, so never made it past green belt.
    I always thought it would be more important to focus on the discipline and integrity that we spoke about in every class.

    Rogers, Ark. Isn't that where the "Red Ryder" BB guns were made? Damn over the years I have owned all kinds of fine rifles. But that old "Red Ryder" still stands out im my memory. It looks like you are going to be one tough Bar room cleaner outer.:D
