They guy who I went up against was the highest rank I believe. Green? I am not familiar with the belt system.

It didnt seem like a class was going on, more like they were there practicing. There was roughly ten people there. I would say all around my age.

I am in a new city going to school. This city happens to be a city where competitive MMA is popular. Well, I was taking a jog down town wearing my school's shirt. While jogging I hear someone yell at me, when I looked back it was a guy in a gi, yelling from the door of a BJJ and Boxing gym. I figured this guy just wanted to talk casually about martial arts so I jog back over to speak with him.

Then the shit talking started about how Kung Fu sucks....... Stuff about why isn't it in UFC and so on and so on. Then the challenge was made. Now I don't consider myself in fighting shape. I am still getting into shape, and I am currently in the process along with my fellow classmates of refining our Wing Chun and its training methods. I accepted the challenge, which was stupid since I was alone in someone else's gym.

We squared off and after a probing punch or two was thrown I had his hands completely trapped and was firing elbows on him. We wanted to fight again. This time he focused on putting me on the mat. He couldn't put me on the mat (We work on take down defense at my school.) and eventually I had him down on the mat dazed or out, from a good knee to the face from him shooting in.

It was quiet when it was all over, I figured I proved my point right, so I left. They started calling my school back home (Two hundred miles away.) and started leaving harassing messages on the answering machine. They were challenging the school, talking shit etc, etc, my Sihing called to tell me about this.

What gives....? I know Kung Fu hasn't been well represented in MMA but why the immaturity?

The good news is I am 2-0 in non friendly sparring MMA fights.

Cyclist.

*edit*
Sorry if this is the wrong forum but I only post in the Training section of the forums.

You are my hero.

I think so of the members are students on campus, I might have told them I am a student living in campus in the beginning to be friendly and conversation. I thought the guy getting my attention was because he was generally interested in WC.....

So much for trying to develop a working cross training relationship huh?

I thought we had gotten past this in the Martial Arts world.

Feuding has, and always will be, a past time in the martial arts world. People feel very strongly about their own particular styles and when someone comes in and blows holes in it, it shows weaknesses in their art (or so they think). The mature thing to do would have been for them to learn from their loss, and probed you for training and information, but obviously the school you attended is not at the maturity level for that.

I am saddened when I continue to see these things, but since time began schools have been territorial about their art. Better for you to learn and be the bigger man in the situation.

um green belts are the highest belt for people under the age of 15 in bjj....in traditional jiu jitsu green is fourth belt from white so more in the middle....i don't know wat kind of skool it was but green is not exactly high....i'm sure it might have been a brown belt sometimes they look green

Green belts in jiu-jitsu are usually given to people under 15.

Jiu-Jitsu is

white, blue, purple, brown, black.

You did not fight and beat up anyone higher than white unless it was a 15 yr old green belt. End of story.

Why do people make posts and think they're internet badasses?!

yo yo that's only true in bjj...it depends on what kinda skool it is.....my mma skool is a mix of japanese and brazillian jiu jitsu....the belts in my skool are white, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple, red, brown, black....different kind of grading...its a combination belt based on standup and ground technique....mostly jsut to give us rankings...like i'm green but i'd technically be like blue in bjj....so if it was a mix skool or if it was a traditional jiu jitsu skool green would be like middle of the pack...but if it was bjj this story is not true

Cyclist, as far as I'm concerned, no one should talk sh*t, regardless of style and ability.

If you beat the guy's ass, that speaks for itself, but it doesn't speak about the quality of the system, just of the martial artist. You were (and are) a better martial artist than that guy, and he should stop talking.

Lol sorry to break it to you but you wouldn't be a blue belt in bjj. You have to be training 2-3 times a week for at least 8 months in strictly bjj to earn a blue belt. Bjj is different than other types of martial arts in the sense that it's VERY difficult to move from one belt to the next.




What a stud

BJJ is
white - blue - purple - brown - black

Getting a black belt can take up to 10 years.

There's no katas or hand steps or any of that shit in BJJ so they award belts based on how much your improving and if your worthy of it.

Like if your a white belt tapping out purple belts, you will probably get a blue belt.
