    I have been training BJJ for 15 years. I'm still a brown belt. There are a number of black belts in this town that I can submit on a regular basis. You know what? I don't care.

    I got all hung up about rank when I was a purple belt for five years and all my peers got promoted to brown and then black. Here I was, still a purple. Then one day I realized that all that worrying about rank was stopping me from enjoying my training. I stopped worrying and resumed having a good time learning my art. I have no idea when I'll get a black belt. I might never get one, but that's ok. What matters is continuing the learning process.

    Also, this is not a MABS type of thread so I'm moving it to YMAS.
    Yeah, we shitted up Villains thread pretty well, didn't we ?

    BTW, "old man", quite being noble and get promoted.

      Nope, that's not what I think.

        I can still enjoy training, and be looking forward to the next rank.

        And, you admitted that you were also hung up on rank once upon a time. Is it lonely up there on your soapbox? Or is there room for the rest of us when we become so enlightened?

        And hey! What's up?

            Yep. Perhaps someone should check, you know, to clear his name.
