      I tapped a BJJ purple during my first lesson.

      He was like "hold my arm like this, control my wrist, now lean back" and then he tapped.
      You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

        He is saying the purple belt was 14.

        In judo, US at least, blue and purple belts are junior rank only; adults (and some teens) get three levels of brown.

        If you read his followup post, he's playing on the somewhat juvenile tendency of people to brag online about what happens in practice (and it happens to touch on the BJJ bias here). Anthony didn't get it.

          You see, it's funny because while you're expecting an esoteric (and therefore comedic) explanation as to why it crossed the road, what you get is a completely mundane, indeed self evident, one. By exposing, and violating, your initial unspoken assumptions, humour is created.

                What? I'm tired of doing all the sweeping around my house.

                      point of order: blue belts do all the work, purple belts wait for you to make a mistake.

                      (either one beats getting injured by a spastic white belt... )

                              Some of us like 10 posts per page. The smallness makes us feel secure. (so many jokes for that I know)

                                I tapped a purple belt the other day. It was a fluke though, I caught him with a guillotine when he was shooting. 99 out 100 times he would win.
