Those are some interesting trousers. I didn't even realize it before. I thought they were just baggy basketball shorts. Not so much.
Good job, Aladdin.

Since last year? Sheesh... done a couple of NAGA tournaments. Fun, excitement, still learning to score points with position versus going for a quick submission. Still training regularly, and trying to squeeze in a shodan and sandan (yes, yes, it's all mucked up) test before September next year. That means learning more boards, and lots of seifukujutsu and kappo.
As to the rest- still making Cub Scouts an adventure for little guys, helped my daughter lose 80 pounds, brewed my first solo beer, ran my second Warrior Dash in armor, got promoted to LCDR, got to dive and fish on Johnston Atoll, and got a Unit Citation Award during the government shutdown.
And I see your magic Genie pants, and raise you this for Halloween (again):
Crushed by work with 10-12 hour days, some insaneness over the last 8 months.
Got ma purple belt, I become less than half a real person. Still supervising open mats on Friday's, working with the whiten's and bluen's to up their games, and trouble shoot their problems, to make them more dangerous when they roll against me.
Upping my training schedule in prep for competing next year for the first time as a purple belt. New nutrition program, fat is coming off well, and on my way to 85-90kgs, wewt, probably a month or two to go to hit the goal.
About to start lifting again now back has recovered from being shitty, looking forward to swole-gainz™.
Good thing is, for Blue, just compete at the first weight you're at and aim to come down as you go, a lot of it is going to be really similar. At purple I know I'm probably going to be moved up weights ANYWAY because I don't think there's enough guys competing it seems. After gi + absolute, I might look at focusing a bit more at no gi again, but I'm definitely weaker in my stand up there, as I've come to rely on gi grips A LOT.
For the SEQLD comp, blue there was like 1 dude in the 90ish range, and then 3 in the over 100. Then for 85 there was a TONNE, lots of guys as you get down.
For purple I know the big guys are like 6"4 and that's really getting to a size that's hard to handle I'm only 6"1 and I don't really have the lanky limbs that they retain with strength as well, so I get caught with their damn spider limbs, so hard to pass.
