well actually i have been training that much for about 7-8 months....and our club is traditional jiu jitsu and bjj hybrid because my sensei originally got his 3rd dan in jjj over in japan....but then also got his black belt in bjj under carlson gracie....we just don't use a regular belt system because it's an mma club so our gradings are based on how good your ground game is and how good your standup is.....like one of the fighters in our club won naga battle at the beach a few weeks ago against a bjj purple belt and she was red belt in our belt....so thats 2 under black...black in our club is like the equivilant of an amazing bjj purple or a shitty bjj brown
The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.
