    We lined up and they gave out two stripes and I was like fuck...then we rolled for an hour and he had us line up again and they called my name. Honestly theres no better feeling than accomplishment around the small group of people you train with.

    Congratulations man.

    Like Hillary said, after a while it becomes a burden where nobody ever expects you to lose to anybody lower than you, no matter the size difference, strenght difference, or style difference.

    Enjoy it, and I think secretly all of us like going in knowing that we stuck with it long enough to get some recognition.
