How would you all feel if BJJ/Judo just did away with belts altogether and functioned like wrestling? Edit: Not saying anything is wrong with it. This is not a bjj/judo bash thread, so please forgo your knee jerk defensive reaction and try to imagine a world without the complexities of numerous belts, and no longer equating belt color with a certain level of competency, but rather let the mat do the talking. No more promotion politics, no more sand bagging. Again, not a bash thread, it's a discussion thread. Taking that into consideration, try to imagine it from a neutral perspective and discuss without misplaced defensiveness. So the question is NOT whether you think it should happen or not, or whether you agree or disagree with a belt system, but rather, 1) what IMPACT would it make on the respective sports. 2) would the impact be negative or positive, in a practical sense (smoothly run tourneys with no sandbagging and no politics). 3) why? .
