Checked out the site on your post Big Game. You must haveta be one bad dude to wear a whit belt when you're a 10th dan. Isn't that an oxymoron?

No not at all kchenault, most very high dan grades in Japan wear white belts. Traditionally as you train more and more your black belt (which signifies the ability to cause great harm)will begin to wear away and the black slow falls off the belt. You relise the importance of Harmony and a deeper understanding of Martial arts. So in essence you come full circle and back to where you started.

I think the reason he chooses to wear a white belt is because he started training in another martial art. I am not for sure though I would have to check.

*While the others are in the confession room, Kensai swims out to a boat that is taking the camera crew back to the mainland.*

Congrats to all the other team APART from Monkeygirl.
