    Adults get their green before their blue at some bjj clubs . It was done to keep the egos of the new students in place when they come in and a white belt whups up on them. With the green belt the person thinks that at least it was some sorta colored belt.

    Ever notice how virtually everyone agrees that 95% of all traditional schools are crap, but NOBODY ever admits to being in that 5%? Don't judge... your skill may suck also...

    And having a dude be a white belt for three years, makes your school look good when the white belts are kicking ass.

    Insted of belts all styles should just have everyone wear a chain around their neck with the number of years they've practiced the Martial arts.

    my first was against the guy who is about my size that i spoke about in my last thread. he hasn't been there since we rolled last and that actually taught me a lot about technique. as we are both noobs you could tell i learned a bit in the time he was gone and was able to relax while he tried to muscle stuff. ill not brag as i got him with a guillotine from the guard (noob cannon), but i was still happy.

    the second was against the wrestler who always beats my ass real good. hes a lot stronger than i am, and explosive, and he just tosses me around every which way. tonight i had him in my guard and kept going for 3/4 guard and he would repeatedly pick me up and slam me on my back. not real hard to be a **** or anything, but hard enough to try and loosen up my legs. i decided to go for the triangle on one of my bounces and almost had it textbook. he tried to roll out and when it was said and done i ended up on top with the triangle still locked in applying pressure down and tapped him.

    he subsequently beat my ass good the next time we rolled, but that does not take the wind out of my sails in the slightest. even when i got my ass beat i managed to dump him when he had full mount (granted that was his 5th match in a row and i was coming in fresh).

    anyway .... im sorry i didn't listen to you mma fukers sooner. i love this sh1t.
    DOOD, that was awesome! Good for you.

    the first guy is now one of my best friends and a brown belt in BJJ. i just got back on the mat after beating grad school and i am actually much worse at BJJ now than i was then. i'm really strong now, but still get whomped.
