This is of course inspired by the "my school's turning mcdojo" thread, but I'm referring to belts not stripes. I've grappled no gi for some time, started doing gi and been told that I could be up for a blue soon. I could be wrong, but I thought I heard about a fee for belt testing. Truth is, if that is the case, I don't know if I even want to test. I don't know about your BJJ place, but the shit isn't cheap as it is, and then to pay extra for something I feel one has rightfully earned by their dedication to the sport and their school (which of course would have already set you back some dough).....I just don't like it. Seriously, I hope my ears deceived me. But maybe this is standard practice, IDK. What is your school's policy?
