One reason is because people wear belts and gi and are given a set of social rules to follow based on the color of the belt. Guys in front with black belts are more dedicated, higher achievers, etc...Why does it seem so hard to tread the middle ground as people once we don belt and gi? Why are we so disappointed when a great practitioner is not a great teacher, when a great teacher is not a great person, or why are we so dissrepectful if a good person is not a good practitioner? And why do we think martial artists would lie less often than everyone else?

Bill, Can you give an example of emotional intelligence and why you think it's missing from Western martial arts?There is an emotional intelligence that IMO must go along with the intellectual and physical intelligence. Sadly I think this is lacking in Western martial arts.
