Not sure how but my son is training for his black belt. He has been training in KungFu for some time now - about 5 years and he is determined to earn that belt. He should be testing in about 2 months.
He started training when he was 13 years old. We started in Kung Fu San Soo with a local instructor but now he is training with the Grandmaster. In this style you have to wait until you are 16 or 18 to earn your black belt.
When he is done testing I want to have a plaque with all of his belts hanging up on the wall in the living room. Something like these here:

There is another kind I am considering though (you can check it out here). It has a more elaborate design and looks rather nice but I am not sure if I can spend the money on that one as it is close to $100.
Hopefully my son passes his test or this is all a moot point! LOL!
