People's thoughts on higher belts at "beginner class"? I'm not talking about the typical Blues and Purples that start showing up at the end of the "beginner class" just before the live rolling, looking like sharks that smell the blood in the water. I'm talking about when BB's-Purple show in mass at the beginning of class, run through warm ups and participate fully in the beginners class. Me, I think it's awesome! Even though it does take away a little from the focus on the white belts I think the trade off is way in there favor having higher belts in class and on the mat with them.
