    Another "I gotz blue belt" thread

    I got called up after class today and promoted to blue belt. I've been training at my current gym for about three and a half years. At 48, with the job, house, kids, injuries, it has not been easy. But for the older guys who are wondering if they can, yes. Go get it.

      Yeah, you are probably not going to see me shitting things up in the AG forum anytime soon. My posting style pretty much relegates me to being a YMAS flyer.

        Congratulations. I trained in BJJ til I was 49, so I know what you've gone thru. The young guys get injured and are back on the mat in a few days. They have no idea what its like to train at our age.

          Congrats, and great advice don't let age stop you. Personally I think age is just a state of mind, at 41 I still act like I'm 20. The best feeling is when you out train someone half your age.

            First of all congratulations.

            I'm half your age and I get schooled by a purple ten years older than you on a regular basis. She's also tiny. It's not just that you can train and achieve at your age, you can serve as inspiration for the younger guys. If I'm in as good shape as my training partner at her age I'll be over the moon.

                I was planning on saying something dickish but upon reading your post, congrats dood. Use your age to your advantage to lull them into a sense of complacency, then smash the kiddies. It's fun. Until they get wise to you anyway.

                  Congratz, blue belt is a good place to start now focusing on chaining attacks. White to blue usually builds your defenses. Blue to purple is for attacking.


                  May the Chun be with you.
