My boys both were awarded their Shichikyu (Purple Belt) last week. As I said earlier in the thread, they are part of the KBK-AMID System, which is a mixed martial arts style. They are nearly halfway to their Black Belts. Our system has the following belt system:
White
Yellow
Orange
Purple
Green
Blue
Brown
Black
Here are a couple shots of the ceremony:

#1: Cody (11), after getting his certificate and his new belt. The old belt is draped across his shoulders.

#2: Austin (10), getting his belt tied.

Ranger Invictus its depends, some martial arts are more strength oriented while others like Aikido rely more on manipulation of your opponent and practically all forms of martial arts are useless for little kids as self defense against a teenager or a adult. But overall starting kids off at a young is good. But many times kids will give it up after they get their blacks or after they get bored.

Well, "Batman and Robin" were presented their Rokkyu (Green Belts) last week. The ceremony for this particular belt (in our style) last about an hour. The boys sat at a table with the senseis and took part in a symbolic tea ceremony. It was a very moving ceremony, and I was quite proud of both of them.

I don’t know what is too early, but it’s never too late.

Kramer: Whoa, whoa. Can't? When did that word enter your vocabulary? What, is the job too difficult? (Jerry nods) What, you don't have enough experience? (Jerry shakes his head) Oh, you're not smart enough? (Jerry shakes his head) Where's your confidence? (Jerry shrugs his shoulders) Look, Elaine, let me tell you a story. When I first studied karate...

Elaine: Karate?

Kramer: Yeah, karate. I had no support. Not from him, not from Newman, no one. The first time I sparred with an opponent, I was terrified. My legs, they were like noodles. But then I looked inside, and I found my katra.

Elaine: Katra?

Kramer: Yeah, your spirit, your, uh, being. The part of you that says, "Yes, I can!"

Jerry: Sammy Davis had it.

Kramer: So I listened to my katra and now <vreep> I'm dominating the dojo. I'm class champion.

My son started in October 2005 (Tiger Claw) Kung Fu. In December 2005 he was awarded his yellow beltn (Issued Jan 16.). Yesterday 4 July 2006 he was awarded/issued his orange belt.

He is on track for a kid 6 ½. I understand some move faster but he has a full schedule. Summer school 7 hours a day for English takes away a lot.

Good morning Rangers,

I noticed quite a few of you have your kids in martial arts. I wanted to share a link with you. If you are not familiar with MMA or grappling some of this might be boring to you. For those who can appreciate it I think you will be impressed. The video takes a minute to really get going. But once it does you will be glad you took a few minutes to watch.

This kid is awesome:

Testing for the Green belt. He made no errors and out of the 4 that tested without bias he was the best. After the holidays will know the outcome.

As the road countinues... In Greece you can't be given the black unless you are minimum 14 years old I found out.

So if he gets his Green then he has Blue, Brown and waits till 14 while training for the black.
