"The moment you have a goal, you cut yourself off from existence. Then a small dewdrop is trying to fight against the ocean. Unnecessary is the trouble, meaningless is the struggle."
Osho pg. 126 "Golden Nuggets"
I see that ranks and belt systems do not belong in the Martial Arts. We are meant to train with no goals, we are simply meant to train and enjoy the beauties of the experience for what it is.
