    Congrats!

    HCK belts don't look fantastic but have the black bar and tie/stay tied really well.

    I have a gameness now...looks AWESOME and hella sturdy/doesn't lose color but doesn't stay tied well

    hope fully we can snag him as our new instructor... unfortunately i dont see it happening, as hugo and leo are friends and i am sure they have spoken of the douchery that went down, which lead to hugo quitting...


    he along with wagney fabiano were my first instructors .... leo didnt remember me..:wtc:

    Congrats on the blue brohan.

    Belt whipping is a bjj tradition. Kind of like a gang jump in or whatever. A rite of passage to your next level.

    I've always done it without gi's. Then it hurts. With the gi on - its not bad.

    Also depends on how big the school is and who is allowed to be involved.

    I hate thick belts. I want my shit to stay tied and I dont' care if it's frayed or the color is gone.
