guys who go to train somewhere else (seminar) and get a stripe given to them from another school not affiliated with your own. One of the guys who trains under my affiliation went somewhere to train and he got a stripe from another instructor. I'm not sure why this happened or what rank the instructor was that gave him the stripe, but I feel like the stripe (even though not significant in itself) should not be worn. For the record, under our affiliation even though I am a certified instructor, I cannot rank anyone b/c I'm not a BB. I don't want to make this a big deal and bring this up with my professor, but I have never exp this before. Seems shady to me. Opinions???
