4th degree black in Taekwondo. I was also awarded a black belt and a certificate by a good friend of mine who put together a self-defense system that is heavy on LEO defensive tactics and women's self-defense. I think I earned a yellow belt in Aikido, and worked up to brown belt rank in Combat Hapkido, both years ago. I've also earned certifications in GRACIE and Police Krav Maga courses, both LEO-focused DT courses.

I hold the Rank of 'Man of the House' although this is self-appointed and I'm pretty sure my wife actually has this title most of the time... or think she does... I'm not sure which anymore...

Other than that I'm also a 4th Dan in Karate

The most important rank I hold right now is the rank of 'Dad'. In many cases that is outranked by 'Mom'.

Other than that, I hold the following ranks (in no particular order)
Apprentice Bladesmith in the American Bladesmith Society
PhD in Computer Science
Shodan in Aikijujutsu (earned 20+ years ago, practiced very little since)
Gokyu in Shuri-Ryu
Yonkyu in Judo
Shodan in Uechi-Ryu

Hopefully My son thinks I am better than I actually am and so does the rest of my Family.

I'm San Dan in Shorin-ryu and hope to further improve in my Kobudo.

I tried searching for similar post on KF but nothing showed up.

I guess its just out of curiosity, to know everyone's experience, considering there are so many different styles. (for me) It makes viewing everyone's responses all more interesting.
