Without him, I'd be crappling. The difference between those two states is worth the possibly sub par instruction. I've also trained at a black belt school. While the black belt was indeed an excellent instructor, I learned MUCH more from the blue belt who was willing to spend time with me sans the 100$ an hour charge. Belt level isn't a concern until you exhaust the instructors knowledge and for a totally noob white belt, that isn't gonna happen with a blue belt for at least a year.
    That is a very good point. And I know the purples that you speak of. Both of them are highly, highly skilled guys. And I think that some of us agree that they both probably have the skill level of a brown.

    Don't flatter yourself Browning. I come back to laugh, not to be resentful. I'm a bit disturbed that the thoughts of a married man keeps you warm at night. I'm guessing you're a pink belt.

    Once again you insist on adding a sexual context to a comment that I made, and then bring up your marriage to prove something when no-one asked.

    I enjoy how you complain about the bitching on Bullshido yet are strangely unable to tear yourself away from it. I hope you realize that the longer you spend here the more likely you will to be assimalated into the Bullshido Borgian collective despite twice insisting that you were leaving. In another month you'll be a full fledged asshole like the rest of us here.

    This is great you're becoming one of us! Why else would you hang out here?

    Are you going to provide the names of, and the details concerning, the people Royce promoted to Blue without even meeting.

    S.B. -

    So is your middle name Oliver...Opus...Olivia ??? Which may explain a lot about you because you would have the initials S.O.B.

    I'm one step ahead of you..."getting" the reverse psychology- suggesting that my life is so empty that I will become someone like you so that I will choose to laugh with you instead of at you.

    I mentioned in a previous posting that I am a new father on paternity leave- looking at this site for entertainment. I will return to my firm in the new year, and won't have time for this.

    Speaking of employment, as well as giving you credit for implementing reverse psychology, I'm guessing that you are in your early 20's between jobs in advertising (which would explain having the time to commit to Bullshido)...OR... you are a middle aged bottom-feeder attorney- probably Workers Comp or public defense...perhaps a law student...who is looking to be king of the dipshits.

    In any case, you seem to bend over backwards (FYI- that's not a sexual reference) to try to find sexual references in postings. You'd be much better off breaking down and paying $20.00 a month for porn websites, rather than being discouraging, hypocritical and insulting people you don't know (ie. a family member of mine) about sports you have never competed in (BJJ).

    "Warmest" regards (this is NOT a sexual reference)-

    Anyways, I had a discussion at the gym about the same issue today. Some asshole around town is charging 170 for instruction by two blues. We all pretty much agreed that thats ludicrous. At this point, I don't think I personally would pay a dime for blue belt instruction. 5 months ago, yeh, but now... I wouldn't complain though if a blue belt occassionally taught, but exclusive instruction by blues doesn't sound too appealing. I tap blues all the time and the holes in my game are GIGANTIC.
    At a point in my training, I got into a situation where I wasn't receiving enough asskicking whilst under a blue belt, and had to look elsewhere for training, as did every one of my training partners who made it to blue belt and above. My 'leaving', whilst not total, was amicable. I'm still on good terms with both of my original instructors, and train with them on a regular basis with their instructor.

    As for blue belts charging 170 a month...I don't know what the going rate around Atlanta is for Black belt instruction, but I pay $130 Aussie a month, and that's considered fairly expensive. I paid $90 a year for blue belt instruction. Unless they have stellar facilities and good instruction in other MAs, that's a rip-off.

    Hey Wolverine:

    I set up a thread for us in Trollshido per Osiris's instructions. My response to your last, poorly written post is there.
