Ringworm blows. My brother, who trains at a different gym, recently got ringworm in over 50 different spots. His school nurse said it was the worst case she'd ever seen.
But basically, if you wash your training gear, avoid using other people's gear, and shower after training (preferably with some kind of antifungal soap), you stand a pretty good chance of staving off ringworm.

Meh, it took me a little over two years to get my blue, training 2-3 times a week.
Our club has a proud tradition of "superwhitebelts", though. Since we have to go outside of our club to test, a lot of people put it off for a long time. We had one guy who one the absolute at the Ohio Grappling Challenge as a 'white belt'.

I need to explain something here.
The school i train at is low on high ranking guys, we got 3 blue belts at the moment and one blue belt purple stripe.
We're sort of an outpost, the official R.G. representative in the netherlands lives all the way down south.
It's imo a good federation/asociation i mean Antoni Hardonk is in it, cant be bad, right?
Im a bit uncomfortable talking about it since im a mere noob, just focusing on techniques, dont care much for associations and federations.
The way it seems now is that perhaps it takes longer since we dont have too many exams/ training time compared to you, at this moment we can train 3 times a week max and maybe one time a week extra at a purple belts school near Amsterdam.

in regards to blue belt: I know all of the things we have to know for the "test", but i'm still working on being able to apply them successfully. I know I'm approaching it, but just not sure how far away.
I trust my instructor, he's a bad ass.
PROOF that I'm not a completely useless poster:
