i think this is kind of like a poser/wannabe habit, would anyone else agree?
I think its time you change schools, sounds like some BS to me man, any instructor that goes that low is just......well I know I would be looking for a new instructor because that does not sound to legit to me.....

Exactly a belt by itself is meaningless even a black one. It's what you have to do to earn it that counts.

He could have legitimate reasons for buying this belt or he may just want to show off, either way as long as he doesn't wear it in class until he's earnt it I don't see a problem. Especially as I could order any belt I liked off or internet or for a shop for that matter.

A yellow belt at 1 class can be worth more than a brown at another the requirements vary from place to place.
