FACE-OFF FRIDAY: How Young Is Too Young To Earn A Black Belt?


This is probably one of the more hotly debated issues in modern times.  Watch the video below.

Some folks think that if a child starts at a young age, and masters the material, there's no reason why a child as young as this can (and should) earn a black belt in a martial art.

Others believe that the expectation of a black belt make it impossible for a young child to be a "legit" black belt, and think there is an age requirement of some sort as part of the rank.

There's no doubt this girl is very good at her form.  So what do you think?
