    I know we see these threads all the time but I had to make one. Today was our team BBQ and I hosted it at my house. To my surprise we did promotions and to my very surprise I was promoted to blue belt. Of course my first thanks goes to my coach and team but I also have to thank sherdog and the grappling forums. this community helps keep my head in it and keeps me driven

    Congratulations!

    I would be a little bummed if I didn't get a gauntlet as a part of my promotion? But a BBQ isn't all bad :icon_chee

    i'm sure the gauntlet will happen Monday :)


    I trained on and off and bounced from gyms for about a year. But i started with my current instructor about 1.5 years ago. I train 3-4 times a week, sometimes more sometimes less depending on work


    lol @ the blue belt for hosting jokes

    My house isn't that big but we have a big yard and pool that is just set up to have parties.

    Thanks for the congrats.

    yeah everyone was told to bring their belts. It worked out nice, the way my yard is set up with the deck it was like a stage.So my coach gave a speech and than called up the guys one at a time talked about them and gave them their promotion. and every ones families and friends were there taking pictures.we had some guys get strips, my self and 2 others got blues.

    You would be surprised at how small a place that hosts a barbeque can be, especially when it comes to the practicioners of the ARTE SUAVE MILENAR.

    Congratulations, TS!
