Article from GrappleArts on Black Belt Blindness and Other Dangers

Stephen Kesting over on Grapple Arts wrote a really good article on Black Belt Blindness and other Dangers- referring to the tendency for people to revere and almost glorify black belts, and how this is a dangerous practice.

And I agree with him- a black belt signifies mastery in one jiu jitsu, not in life in general. We’re all human, from white belt all the way up to black: we’ve talked about this before, but achieving your black belt does not offer you another other sort of superiority over anyone else.

Check the article out and let me know what you think. Otherwise, have a great day everyone!
