    Intermediate I'd say. Advance would be purple, brown, black

    this is off the naga registration form:
    novice - under 6 months (no wrestlers)
    beginner - 6 months to 2 years
    intermediate - 2 to 5 years
    expert - 5+ years

    with that being said there're guys in my school who've been training just over a year and won intermediate several times ... so if you are at least on an avg level for a blue belt you should be going intermediate
