    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I received my blue belt last night

    I'm just really excited I and it seems nobody outside of the club I train in even knows what I'm talking about. So I had to tell someone.



    We had a great night last night, with a bunch of people who deserved their blue belts for some time now finally getting promoted. (I've been wondering when a few of these guys were going to get theirs.)



    Also one kid received his yellow belt. He's only 14 but can hang with most blue belt adults his size with no problems. However our instructor will not give blue belts until age 16.


    All in all a good night for the club. For the record my instructor is a brown belt under the late Carlson Gracie.

    hehe, wasn't bad at all.

    I did roll my ankle when I got suprised with a guy pulling guard on me while I was chatting with the guys around me. It was a blast of a night though.

    It's funny, this is the first time I've ever been excited at a belt promotion. TKD, Judo, aikido, I never really cared. But I couldn't stop talking about it last night.

    Good Job, FP,

    Some day I hope to be good enough to get mine.
    If you can't laugh at yourself,
    Others will be happy to do it for you. :evil6:
