    Anyone else notice this trend? Drives me NUTS.

    If a girl wins 2 divisions at a belt she'll normally get promoted, regardless of technique. I met a girl today who was a 1 yr 4 month purple belt that stood up (not stacked) to try to get out of an armbar she fed to her opponent.

    Instructors are letting female students gain rank way too early and not forcing them to have the extensive knowledge of their male counterparts. Fortunately, my instructors do (which'll leave me at blue for another couple of years), but too many chicks are getting promoted to fast and watering down divisions.

    The brown/black belt females right now are usually the ones that got it the real way. Most of them are the shit, so this isn't directed toward them. Mostly toward a crop of blue/purple belts coming up.

    Not the only, of course, or else I'd be undefeated. It's just easier to find the watered down belts than not.

    Most of you here have been in it longer than me (especially Crowbar and Chechen I think, from what I've read) and are parts of bigger, more established teams so you probably don't see at as frequently as in the midsouth.

    I felt like I got my blue belt too early, and my coaches did too. They recognized that they gave it early because of winning a big competition and vowed not to do it again.
