Who did you tap and when?
I've read far too many threads where people are tapping out blue belts on their second session and all that, so I thought I'd create THE thread for who tapped out who and when. Basically, I'd like to know:
What belt you are.
How long it took you to get.
When you tapped your first blue/purple/brown/black.
And we're talking proper tapouts, not accidental wristlocks or cramp or somesuch.
I know this is sort of covered in other threads, but I haven't found one that directly addresses this issue so far. If I'm wrong, feel free to delete.
And it kinda goes without saying, but please, be honest.
For my end, I'm a blue belt, which I got after around nine months' training.
Tapped my first proper blue (not significantly outweighed or out of shape) about eight months in, whilst training pretty much full time. Also tapped a few purples, but I'm convinced they weren't really trying with those 'cuz it was far too easy and they can whip on me when they choose to. So I don't count those.
Go wild, guys.

I tapped out a blue belt after about 3 months of formal training. In all fairness he wasn't really trying his hardest, and he tapped me out within 45 seconds after that. I've never gotten anyone higher than a blue to tap in real live rolling (not counting drills, or king of the hill etc...)

I'm pretty sure this thread is more about the douche bags who train in crap like kempo and then brag about beating up anonymous bjjers.
You know, like you.

I look forward to going to class tonight. Everytime I go I have high hopes of tapping out a whitebelt. Unfortunately I keep going home disappointed. One of these days I will join the ranks of the elite grapplers in my community who have tapped out white belts. The thought of tapping out a blue belt is a dream that makes blood flow to my penis.

I have tapped out a 3 stripe blue belt. It was about 3 months ago. I think she was tired from a tournament the past week. I got her in a kimura from side control . I am a white belt, with about 7 months of training.

I'll answer your questions in order.
I am a white belt.
I got it yesterday
On the same day, after about 5 minutes I tapped this guy my club. I think his name was rickson gracie, got him with a triangle then a kimura. He was wearing a black belt, but it took me all of 10 seconds to tap him twice. Then I tapped his dad, Helio, and then a couple of his brothers using something called a reverse omaplata.
I am available for seminars.He who attains his ideal by that very fact transcends it- Nietzsche
I like my Te like I like my tea- from Fujian province and without any bullshit in it. Oh, and green. And scented with jasmine blossoms...

I tapped my purple belt instructor in my second class.
If you count spastically falling on him while he showed me a mount escape and him saying "get off me" instead of rolling out and breaking my shoulder as tapping.
Which I do.You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.
