They'll put you in a video game...

Kid 1: You know, if you do martial arts long enough, they'll put you in a video game.
Scarf Girl: What?
Kid 1: Yeah, if you do martial arts for a really long time, you get put into a video game. I read this article about a guy who did martial arts from when he was like, 4, to like 16.
Kid 2: Six-TY or Six-TEEN?
Kid 1: Six-TEEN.
Scarf Girl: Uh...that's not really that long. But they just put him a game?
Kid 1: Yep. He was like a 10th dan. No reason for him to keep going without any kind of reward, so they put him in a game.
Scarf Girl: They didn't know what to do with him, so they just put him in a video game?
Kid 1: Yep!

Later on, we were having a conversation about how old one would be to become a master, or 5th dan, in our system.

Scarf Girl: If you train consistantly after black belt, add about one year for each stripe you want to earn. So it would be 1 year for first, then 2 more years for second, 3 years for third, and so on. So you'd be 24 by the time you were a master! *to Kid 1*
Kid 1: Wow...I'll be like, one of the youngest masters!
Scarf Girl: Yep. They'll put you in a game.
