    It happens, rarely when they're serious. That's less true for me versus purples now but remains the case against browns.

    Sure. You just have to convince your judo instructor to let the high grade juniors into the senior randori.

    On a more serious note I did manage to get a couple of good takedowns, one each on a brown and black.

    But this was AFTER the brown had thrown me hard enough to count as a Triple Ippon Score in Judo Scrabble.

    I did the same once to a brown. Very odd mistake for him to make (once).

    You have purple belts on Iceland? I'm impressed.

    I agree with what you are saying, I read a lot of threads and YAWN.

    Maybe you're not technically funny anymore, but your whitty jabs at the bullshido community make me chuckle.

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

    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.
