RE: Black Belt
I disagree a black belt means nothing. Belt grading in martial arts is all about controlling the path of their students. You do not require a belt grading system in martial arts. It is the same for the roots of martial arts that is all hocus pocus. People talk about the branches of martial arts but no one actually knows where the roots started. They could of started anywhere in the European, African or Asian countries. The mainstream of martial arts has been so cleaned up over the last few decades as well.
