But by the same token, as a dan rank you wouldn't totally dominate a white belt, would you? The white belt will just be ovewhelmed and won't learn much of anything, and may pick up some bad habits if you do it often enough.
If they were stupid enough to compete against me in an open division , and I outclassed them incredibly , I`d dominate them and if they still tried to fight I`d take them out . It would be an afront to do anything less .
having said that white belts can kick sandans asses in Uechi competitions Ive seen it , this is a flawed argument .

actually Canada is improving a lot amoungst the second teir sides , quite an acheivement , and theres sevens side is quite good , they have beaten fiji before (Fiji are maybe the greatest sevens team in the history of sevens Rugby ) . It`s all to do with th competition .
I'm not suggesting anyone play pathetically. In that case it would be doing a disservice to the other team. But a team that is so vastly superior can tone their game down to a level where they're, say, only outscoring their opponents 10-1 rather than 28-0 without it being an insult I think.
your insulting the opposition , and doing a diservice to yourself , a proffessional and a competitor has personal standards , mentally and physically . It is indeed an insult , it`s akin to patting you on the head and saying good on ya for trying little fella .
If you go easy how will they ever know there level , and if anything they do well becuase of skill or complacency , how do the test there positive attributes and find there weaknesses .
Any serious competitor would be sickened at the though of such a farce ....
it would be better to end the game at half time , than play a charade .
