    Sorry guys for posting a blue belt post but Im pretty excited and wanted to share the news with you guys.

    I competed in the Louisianan State BJJ tournament today and ended winning the 207.5 lb weight limit. The best part of it all was that I beat the guy that won the open white belt absolute.

    Shortly afterwards Prof. Raphael Ellwanger came up to me and awarded me my blue belt. It came as a complete shock as I was not expecting this.

    Ill continue working hard if not harder to live up to the blue belt expectations.

    The tournament was great. Saw a couple of fighters there such as Rich Clementi and Tim Crueder. Ill post some videos when I get a chance so that you guys can critique me in what I need to work on.

    Been training for exactly one year now.
