    being a white belt for a while isn't a bad thing, makes each promotion more meaningful.

    I agree.....I don't mind at all.....All I really work on right now is defense.....I basically put myself in the worst possible positions starting out.....If I start with someone in my gaurd I work on my sweeps.....If I start with them having side control, I work on not getting submitted and back into at least half gaurd.....If I start with them in mount.....Then I try not to get submitted and get to my side asap and get them off of me......
