    Hmmm.... I feel like I fit into the white belt category fo sho. If I attended 3 BJJ classes 18 months or so ago, do I count as a white belt still?

    It's pretty accurate until brown belt. The caption for brown should read, "You capitalize on stupid stuff better.", and the black belt part should read, "You are able to make the lower ranks do stupid stuff.".

    The rest is BJJ nutrider BS.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    It is merely for fun. No nutriding. Promise. :)

    And I guess it depends on the rank advancement practices at any particular school. This was probably written more to the "old school" where the average is about 10 years from white (no prior XP) to black belt.

    But -- for good or ill -- there are a lot of schools now with more aggressive advancement.

    Aren't we all white belts? (In something)? That should probably be profound in some way, but my coffee hasn't kicked in yet.
