Busting the Myths about Rank

I co-authored an article in the last “Official Karate Magazine” Annual edition about the myths surrounding karate ranks, belts and titles. There have been so many requests for the contents of that article that I have attached it here as a PDF that you can download. Suffice it to say that most karate instructors don’t know the first thing about the actual history of the titles they claim. I hope this clears up some of the confusion.
