Very true. I guess I just feel that way because I used to play Kumdo (Kendo). Competition is emphasized in Kumdo and the divisions are based on rank. The school I practiced at was really strict on giving out black belts (1dan), and as a result I couldn't compete in dan-level competition in college tournaments I went to.
