Good luck on hopefully getting tested
In bjj it goes white blue purple brown black. Is green like an intermediary from purple to brown? I was gifted the rank of purple belt in October 2010 but I honestly still feel I'm at least a year away from deserving brown belt, but it's more of a distance than a time. The distance between myself and white belt is the distance
from me to black, that occasionally intimidates me xD
I'd recommend nogi. The reason is that you aren't going to be wearing a gi if you have to defend yourself on the street. With a gi on you are more dangerous it opens up new holds, submissions and throws. It essentially is handle bars on an opponent xD and it means you can choke someone easily with one arm. But to me nogi is better for actual use. Lots of respect for judo, I've been thrown and tripped before and its legit.
Green is an intermediate belt. Judo belt ranks go white, yellow, orange, green, brown, (2nd and first degree brown), black.
You don't wear a gi on the street, but you will likely be wearing a fairly heavy shirt or jacket, or at least pants, some of the time. Gi grappling *is* hot as all get out, especially for those of us that have to wear a shirt underneath, but it's so much fun I don't mind.
