    Rolled/drilled with Roli from 2-4 today, hung around and did judo after.

    He showed me a sick guard pass and I told him it was pretty good for someone who doesn't deserve a black belt. He proceeded to roll with me without strength but just fucked me up positionally and before each sub would go, "Man, if only I were a black belt I could do something cool...like this." Thank God my coach has a sense of humor and is confident in his abilities, that would have crushed me to see shit talk all over the internet.

    So anyway, I took a shower afterwards and when I went back to the office to get my gi top/belt it had a stripe on it. Neato.

    wtf?

    I think something is seriously wrong with where I'm training at... So I got my blue belt like... 3 years ago and now im approaching 5 years of training (january is the anniversary). I got two stripes from the black belt who used to be the head of the old place i trained at almost two years ago, and competed/won/medaled in a lot of tournaments since then... and I never get striped at promotions!

    I train at least 3 times a week, how long did it take you to get purple hillary?

    dont ruin her glory sir. your time will come.

    i've been training a long time too.. but we arent getting first place in ten thousand tournaments. hillary is like queen of bjj.

    if we were getting first place in 50 tournaments a year then we'd probably get promoted at that pace too.

    I think my school is a lot more like your place than Hillary's place. I also think because she's there for hours and hours every single day it really makes yours and my training experience a lot different (and belt progression slower).

    That said, congratulations Hillary. It's always good to see a little recognition and progress!

    So Roli is justifying his BB by beating up a girl? :ugh2:

    Is that kind of like Kip getting dominated by Rex-qwan-do? :rofl:



    J/k, congrats!

    Roli jokes around with me, but he's an amazing coach and why I've come so far so fast. I take myself and my training too seriously and he never lets me.

    I train 6 days a week, when it's summer time 4 of those are twice a day. I travel a lot so I roll with more black belts than lower ranks, and most of them offer advice after rolling. Roli and Matt give me individual attention (aka privates or 40 minute rolling sessions just us) 3-4 times a week, and I've had over 70 competition matches. This will lead to pretty quick progression.

    That being said, I'll be at this belt for a while. Women's brown and black belts compete together at Worlds and Pan Ams, so they're going to make sure I'm hanging with black belts before I step up to the best competition.
