    not by belt but i got 2 stripes at once. it felt awesome, mostly due to all the stress and drama going on around me at school and home lately.

    Meh, it's not like he got his blue. Although my buddy finally got his third stripe almost a year and a half. Maybe he has preformed well and remembered a lot of the moves?

    also let me explain my background

    i've been doing BJJ on and off for about 2 years so that may have helped.

    idk the grading criteria tbh

    random choice of languages.

    oh, and yeah, definitely less ridiculous if you've been doing some training for a while.

    i'm from the german part of switzerland

    and i speak fluent arabic after having lived there all my life




    i didn't say the training background part because i thought it "didn't count".....i'm a retard
