    This brings up an interesting point. Does anyone know the actual percentage of white belts that make it to blue? I've always heard less than 25%, but I've no idea if this is accurate.

    No one who does BJJ is nerdy enough to do such calculations. Get a chunner!

    Good work man that is awesome, I would love to get one.

    Give us a bit of history. How long did it take you, did you train all at one school, how often do you train, any highlights etc.

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Wasn't he a member here, too? If anyone can help us figure out the attrition rate in BJJ, it's him.

    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    In a nut shell, I did the usual tkd as a kid, quit for a few years, tried a few arts, got into aikido, was encouraged to try judo indirectly via my aikido instructor. Did judo for 6-7 months, then started bjj (still kept going to judo). I've only trained at one bjj club (I've visited a few but only seriously trained at one) Usually 4 days a week. I also now train judo and mauy thai (well i'm starting that next monday) there. I've been training in bjj for just a little less then a year and 1/2.

    The only highlights is that my instructor brings in a lot of great black belts for semminars, and that I get to train with a few guys who made it to the KOTC and once with Stephan Bonnar. I also got to tap out the black belt and brown belts in my old judo club after about 6 months of training. My only regret is that I never got to meet Carlson, my instructor brought him in while I was out of town. A few months later he died.

    I'm looking forward to see how I do in touraments over this next year. I'm also offically approved by the wife to get into MMA. We made a promise that I would not persue MMA till I had either a black belt in judo of a blue belt in bjj. I'm on track to get a brown belt in judo in the next year or two (depending on how often I can keep hiting touraments).

    Good work man, on not only getting the Blue in BJJ, but getting permission to do MMA, I am assuming these are bouts right?

    you train 4 days per week in BJJ, then Judo and MT on top?

    Maybe we will see you in the next season of TUF!

    Congratulations, well done all round.
