    the funny thing is nobody thinks it's early even though he's only been training for less than 4 years.


    I agree that it's perfect timing, but it does seem overdue because of the amount of tournaments he's dominated as a purple belt both gi and no-gi.


    at brown ryan will have more weapons at his disposal and may be an even greater threat in the gi than he was at purple.

    Agreed. I think it's right on schedule. It's not like he has been dominating purple belt competitions for years - he finally peaked this World's season and now deserves his promotion.

    Toe-Holds and Kneebars are now legal, and they are very popular submissions from the inverted spider guard as mentioned

    Well I don't expect anyone to get promoted to black belt and like a month later win the mundials as a black belt. Sure it has been done but it's not expected.

    Ryan is progressing at the proper rate to be a solid BJJer.

    Congrats to him and his team who is building his skills.




    Took me 8 years to get my Brown from Cesar. You guys gotta be more patient, BJJ is the last honest thing that has not sold out.

    I will bet Ryan is stoked, and I bet he sticks with it till he is a top competitor.

    i no longer care how many threads are started, lauding every move ryan hall makes. in fact i applaud it since it will help his bjj career, and, well since i've never herd a bad thing said about the guy, more power to him. the only thing i'd like clarified once and for all is how long he's been training. just a solid number that can be referenced when explaining how good he is.

    he's like sonny liston in this respect, some say sonny was born in 1932, some say ata the begining of 1930 and other's have said 1929. hell his own mother kept changing her mind on when he was born. so one of you guys whose a fan of mr. halls, i implore you to figure it out once and for all.
