Sidai Bang's Opinion of the new Rank
I agree with Sifu, and with you as well Ali. To me, it doesn't matter whether you wait a year, a day, two years, two hours to try and go for the red rank, what's really important is maintaining the rank. Getting involved with the Kwoon, being an instructor in order to generate income is very crucial to the rank because then more people will be attracted to the Kwoon. See my problem is this: Being a red rank entitles more than just the title. It means having more responsibility. It means representation of the Kwoon, in and outside of it. I'm not worried about how much time it takes to get the rank. It all depends on your preference. If you feel you are fit enough to achieve it in a day, two years, three months, etc--cool, kudos to you. What really matters is staying involved with the Kwoon, devoting time to the well-being of it and generating funds in order to keep the doors open.
