I can see why you answered a lot of irate emails...laughs...overall I like a lot of what you write about organizations etc. I agree with the general context. We just disagree on a few points...hope you enjoyed the food for thought.
I respect your opinion but your point about martial artists "testing in person" vs. "correspondence" being "less credible" applies to a good portion of the industry out there "especially the higher dan grades" including a lot of well respected TKD teachers and Masters throughout the world and you could be offending them by saying such. Not everyone has the opportunity in life being too tough or whatever to get their higher dan grades in person..does that mean they are less credible
