Congrats on the blue! Awesome stuff. Were you surprised?
Congratulations on moving up. Is it customary in some BJJ schools to test at random, or were you just not sure if you'd get moved up?
I wasn't surprised to be honest. I've been holding my own with other blue belts for awhile now. My instructor told me a couple weeks ago that I was very close. Last class I got to roll him and I could tell he was impressed. Next class, blue belt, bada bing.
