In the majority of Martial Arts schools there are 2 ways to increase in rank. The first is belt test and the second is tournaments, or to say it more plainly; beat a belt of a higher rank on the mat in front of a crowd and a judge.
Kung-Fu students learn that Kung-Fu is an art that is not to be displayed publicly unless absolutely required, and then only to disarm or incapacitate. It should never be used to boast of one’s abilities or rove” something. It has been proven over and over, that martial art students who deviate from this thinking almost always end getting hurt by a more skilled student because they picked a fight
At Kung-Fu we do not participate in tournaments. Our experience is that they provide a false sense of security and encourage aggressiveness. For example, if a yellow belt beats an orange belt, now the yellow belt feels like he can beat all orange belts. Often times, this yellow belt will now feel like he is better than other yellow belts,
and treat them
Who is to say that the orange belt was simply off, or maybe ust not as trained as he/she needed to be?
