    Uh...I suck?
    Just kidding, up until very recently I trained at 6 different schools over that 6 years. So one week I was training at one school, the next week another place, that kind of thing. There was no school in my area so it was an hours drive to any school. Because of that me and some buddies also started doing garage judo (informal practice, no instructor). Only recently have we gotten a judo black belt to take over our club. He says I should be a brown and is gonna' promote me, probably within a month. Right now I can hang with brown's no problem in randori, however I suck at tournaments.

    Judo Brown after maybe 15 years on & off. I stayed at blue for ages & was too slow in getting back into competition to get points for my shodan. Shodan next year for sure, the points are almost there.

    BJJ whitebelt (with some blood! haha). Been training for nearly 9 months, but have had 2 months out with injuries.

    I'd imagine the blue is still far away, but I have a 3 hour Braulio Estima seminar soon, so that should help.

    I am not really concerned about my belt. Yeah, it would be cool to have a orange belt (Judo) or higher, but to me, I am just there to:

    1. Lose weight
    2. Learn something new
    3. Break up the monotany of daily life

    I would be happy being a white belt for the rest of my days.
