    So we have about 12-14 guys (and a girl) who are 4 stripe white belts. We've never had this many people at this level at the same time. My instructor decided to have some fun and make all of them fight in a submission only tournament next Tuesday. The winner gets a blue belt. Have you guys ever done something like this?

    Also I'd like to name this something cool, but I just can't think of a good name so any help with that will be greatly appreciated.

    This will end up with everyone getting a blue belt for some reason I think :p

    I can only think of one thing when imagining a room full of these killers: "My god, it's full of gatekeepers!"

    Nah we have a couple of black belts for that. And none of these people consider themselves "pretty much blue belts." On top of that, I haven't heard any news about new MMA teams being formed.

    I think Nocturno wouldn't approve of this.

    That actually would be fun to watch especially a submission only event! I am surprised your instructor is making everyone compete. Some people just hate to compete even if it's at the academy!

    How about probationary 4-stripe white belts competing for a chance to become a probationary blue belt? I'd find that loads of fun!

    This is such an awesome idea... I wish our 4 stripers would battle it out for a blue belt.

    I think it saves him the trouble of blue belt testing.

    I'd call it something like "The Blue Thunderdome"

    14 white belts go in, only one blue belt comes out.
