    Im gonna go ahead and venture that blue belts in Kyokushin as a whole do not have the same level of arrogance/confidence as BJJ bluebelts.For example, you dont see any Kyokushin blue belt tags do you? Speaking of which, how do I get my blue belt tag?

    You don't, just like in real life blue belts don't matter and nobody remembers your name.

    Well in my Kyokushin dojo, blue belt is what you get after white belt. We don't have a yellow belt at all though, certainly don't have a black and yellow belt.

    We have white, blue, green, brown, black. It's 10 ranks to get to black belt, not including when you start out with a plain white belt- that's considered no rank.

    You only get tags because of your tachi waza, nobody is impressed with your blue beltesque ground game. Thus I will call you by name when we are doing takedowns, I'll call you "imp" or "noob" once we go to the ground.


    And while I'm at it. Purple belts suck too, you're not actually good at ground fighting until black belt level. Even then you can still be a loser among black belts. Winners are guys like Andre Galvao, Rubens Charles, Claudio Calassans, Kron Gracie, etc.

    ( Reason for rant= I recently rolled with a top tier black belt in my weight class and found out how much I really suck.)

    Seriously I fell terrible at BJJ all the time. Then I get white belts asking me questions and am shocked anyone could not know what they are asking. It is all relative man.

    *edit* ah where did the scary old vampire man image I quoted go?

    Oh **** I seriously think I KNOW THAT GUY. That's GrandPa DeSade. I used to do laundry for him and his wife, and cook, in return for dinner. I was in college and needed broke as hell. He never got naked around me.

    Dude had a life-size cutout of Commander Worf standing in his window.

    Was actually a nice guy.

    Took sadistic pleasure in creeping people out though. He would say "hey wanna see my naughty santa pics from the party last month?" and I'd say "OH GOD NO here are your shirts."

    Ah, college. I learned a lot... outside of classes.

    Having trained a variety of martial arts previously, including Kenpo, I recently started from scratch as a white belt training Goju Ryu. Many of the things we cover at first strike me as counterintuitive to not only my experience, but what I've been trained in other disciplines. But I just try to play the scientist and ask good questions at proper times, and understand and master the why's and how's, rather than summarily dismiss something. Often I find paradigm-shifting and useful stuff to add to the toolbox, that I wouldn't have otherwise picked up if I had piped up and said 'hey, well I prefer to do it like this,' or had dismissed it quietly. But I admit, keeping my mouth shut and ears open is easier some days than others.
