Bullshido Members new ATT Blue Belts.
Mestre Ricardo Liborio had a belt ceremony last Friday. Some Bullshido members got promoted.
One of my heroes over at ATT for his consistent training and work ethic has been Jeffrey. I hate rolling with him cause he's big as Hell, in fact all of my training partners are bigger than me, and I'm 250lbs. :(
Jeffrey joined American Top Team after our first south florida throwdown. Help me congratulate him in getting his Blue belt in less than one year. :)
Another training partner of mine, and one of my corners when I fought and beat Rudy Abel, is Francisco, aka as EL Matador ATT here on Bullshido. Cisco is always at ATT, day in and day out for hours. He's helped my BJJ game alot by always going for subs when we roll, and having constant pressure when he's on top. One of my really good friends, he also got his Blue Belt in a year.
Last but not least, after starting BJJ in 2003, having intermitent training, and finally training consistently for a year unbroken, taking a little over 2 years put together, I finally got my Blue Belt. I'll be here for awhile. :)

Congrats to all. Jeff, Ant, and Francisco. I remember rolling with Jeff at the last throwdown and thinking that if he added to solid tech to that strength and size he could be hard to handle, glad to see that he took to BJJ.
ATT belts are the real deal man; if Liborio (or any ATT instructor for that matter) promotes you, you have put in your time, blood, sweat, and tears to earn it.
Welcome to the blue belt club, you will now have to adjust and center the targets on your back and wear them proudly for the next 6 months. At least that is how long it took me to feel like all the whites were not gunning for me anymore.
CONGRATS, ATT for the win baby!!!!

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
