    Definitely felt surprised. If there is any belt to feel like you're not quite ready, it is black belt. It has re-motivated me to work harder, "to prove it to myself"

    That's awesome! Definitely nice to see the old school forum regulars get their BBs.

    Congrats man!! That's a massive accomplishment.

    8.5 years? That's wild. When JJ Lab started up I figured that you had been training for a good bit of time already.
