    ok wait a second, i thought that during the controversy over the saudi woman wearing a black belt at the olympics that it came up that several competitors were still brown belts (ikkyu) due to age restrictions but were allowed to wear black belts at international IJF events (and the olympics.)

    I don't know if I have ever been more insulted on the interwebz.
    That was cold as ice.

    Local tournaments are often divided by rank if they have enough competitors, but there's usually only 2 categories: typically brown/black, then everybody else.
    The Saudi woman was an anomaly. Anybody who makes it to WC or Olympics is going to be a black belt in Judo. Quite a few cadets and many juniors compete as black belts already.

    One of my students trains from time to time at a large dojo in Montreal. At blue belt (nikyu), he was an anomoly, most of the other 14 and 15 year olds were ikkyu already.

    However, they have not yet sunken to the low of money grubbing of having WC or Olympics for non-black belts. Yes, they have WC for Cadets and Juniors.

IIRC at the Sask Open they have an adult beginner division which is green and under, or is it orange? Anyway, locally there might be a suitable division for a BJJ guy who wants to try his hand at competitive judo.

    You would get knee capped in the parking lot by a "random" Tesla malfunction.

    I suggest Rayce go work out with Rhadi for a while. Although I think Rhadi is pretty busy with private clients at this point in time.
