    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Kat and I got our blue belts today!

    No, no, not in BJJ you silly people... in muay thai! More accurately, "Combat Thai". Apparently Lloyd Irvin gives out belts for their thai class, so Ed decided it would help keep attendance up if he also instituted the belt system.

    Bow before my mighty blue belt!

    I was under the impression kickboxing/Muay Thai didn't have any graded belts.

    I found it quite humorous when a belt was tied over my thai shorts

    Congratulations.

    Now, how does it feel to be part of the McDojoization of legit martial arts by adopting fairly ridiculous belt systems where none have been needed for hundreds of years?

    Huh ?

    McDojoism has infected Muay Thai ? Nothing is safe.

    Personally i dont like the idea of wearing belts, my idea of a "promotion" is when I can beat up someone that I didnt used to be able to.

    But whatever, the point is to help boost attendance, can't blame him for wanting to run a successful business.

    It's silly marketing. Muay thai schools have been using silly marketing strategies for years. Fairtex is a McDojo, but you're still getting quality training.

    On the plus side when I showed Shawn, my BJJ instructor and told him "yeh, i'm a blue belt now so get ready to have your ass kicked" he laughed and said something along the lines of me not being far away from having one in BJJ aswell...Cool.
