Above Average

by wjw on June 9, 2017

Tonight I was at the karate school as part of a judging panel, wherein I did my best to confusticate and bamboozle two candidates for fourth degree black belt.  (I failed.)  They were quite magnificent, and after a four-hour test were both still on their feet.

But the experience reminded me of the following:

Q: How long does it take the average person to earn a black belt?

A: Average people don’t earn black belts.

But how long does it take, on average, for those who earn black belts to do so?

It took me something like 8-10 years, but I wasn’t in any hurry.

In my school I suspect a very diligent student could get there in maybe 3 years.
