I have a solution. If he won't, find a couple big guys you get along with and feel comfortable rolling around with and practice together?

Belt testing is so lame, IMO. Belts don't equate to skill. Who cares if you have a black belt if a yellow belt can beat you up?

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.

I don't mind testing for rank, but I hate testing in front of the entire school and so does every other adult female I know.

It is not just females. Testing in front of the class is crap.

To be completely honest, TKD is horrible.
