    ahh what a feeling. been training over 2.5 years with some breaks (knee injury {3 months} and moved up north and back {4 months} )....I train under Jeff Baldwin at Rebellion (formally Roy Harris Academy and not affiliated with Roy anymore). I'm the bottom right

    best part was, one of my toughest training partners got his purple after over 5 years as a blue.

    feels weird to have a crisp, mint condition belt on lol, my white was in pretty bad shape.

    I was so bad when I got my blue belt, I actually thought I was pretty good.

    Congratulations on the promotion. Your instructor needs to learn to tie belts while facing people.

    Congratulations! !

    You know they say if you only use the first whiye belt you ever got and train hard for a long time, eventually it turns black

    Keep training

    Congrats on getting your blue. Now the hard part is not quitting.. I'm sure you have heard of the drop out rates for blues.. but inquiring minds would like to know what happened with Roy and who are you all with now?
