I grappled against two JJJ people so far - one a few months ago and another last week - and beat both soundly. Our experiences color our perceptions. I made this thread to confirm whether JJJ brown belts are indeed not as good as I originally thought. Those martial artists will have to work extra hard to impress me now. However, I understand your point. I'll defer my judgement on higher belts until I have more experience. P.S. Yes, I'm dorky.
