Thank you so much and congrats on your 2nd Dan! You must be proud as well! (:
It all honestly boils down to what you know rather than how fast you got your belts. I think nowadays people are more focused on getting their blackbelts as fast as they can and are willing to pay anything to get it ASAP. In my opinion, THAT is considered rushed and not ideal. I’m definitely old school in terms of training and I’m a strong advocate of mastering the fundamentals before moving up in rank.
Well done. Well deserved. :)
