Question for you all. Current two stripe white belt here who has been traiing for about 6 months. I took 3rd in dec 07 in gi and no gi at a local tournament here in myrtle beach, sc. This march i took 1st in gi and no gi at another local tourament here in gi and no gi. This was in the begineer division. Next tournament is in june and im guessing i will still be a white belt then but should i try out the next level, intermediate division, or is it considered rude to bump up without the actual belt level. Thanks for any input!
