Bjj is not tae kwon do. why should you have to pay to get tested for blue or purple belt, it should be awarded on your abilities and teaching skills, dedication to the sport and willingness to put in the time to get there. paying to take the test.. HELL NO. i have taken this personally. i will stay a 4 stripe blue belt forever and just tap people out with a freaking vengence. please discuss how ALL of feel about testing and paying.
