I got my green belt today. The commission was very strict which I liked, but I was very nervous. I could barely speak.I did good, but there is room for improvement. It's been 3 years of agony and ecstasy of Judo so far. It seems like it was yesterday I was toying with the idea to start training.
O yeah, and one thing has upset me. There is one kid, still in elementary school who has gotten an orange belt(skipped the yellow) because of his "achievements" in competition(two or three bronze medals in contests where his opponents were in small numbers and had less skills than him, and he had ONE win in every of those contests). This guy has lousy throws and nonexistent ground game.
Anyhow, it feels good to move up rank.
