If you're a purple belt and are getting tapped out by white belts, you're not gonna be purple belt quality.

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

OK, I'm confused.

You've been training 7-8 months and are at green belt in a hybrid jujitsu.

First, I thought I'd clarify the difference between jujitsu and jiu-jitsu, for people who are getting as confused at I am with the change.

Jujitsu is an old Japanese martial art with branches, but not limited to, judo, aikijujitsu, aikido, etc.

Jiu-jitsu come from the root "jitsu" (meaning style) and jiu (meaning "free," as in jiu-waza).

Hopefully someone who speaks Japanese can back that up for me, but that's my rudimentary understanding.

Second, there's this whole rank thing.

You might be a green belt in "hybrid jujitsu," but that doesn't mean you could have a blue belt in BJJ. Belt systems don't work differently just from style to style, but from school to school.

In my BJJ school, you have to train for at least a year before you get your blue belt. That said, I know that guys like Lloyd Irvin have a slightly different grading philosophy (that's not a shot at Irvin, but he does give out belts a little differently than most).

The systems are different, too. Just because I have a blue belt (3rd kyu) in Aikido, doesn't mean I'd have a green belt in your style, the same way my BJJ rank doesn't automatically promote me.

Don't try and compare your rank in one martial art (or even in one academy) to another. They all mean different things, the only way that we figure these things out is through competition.

If the guy in charge is a prick, well you've just found out why the guys at that gym act the way they do. You'd probably have to find a new jogging path after that.
That reminds me of a scene from the karate kid. That sensei was a real ass.

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.
Great to hear, glad the guy got what was coming.. IMO some of the cockiest douches in MMA that go out an pick fights with strangers for no reason are also the worst at it. The guys that are good usually have nothing to prove.

Nice, repped for beating that ass :P

I had a friend who was in traditional karate, he invited me to go check out his gym. So while I was watching I got to talking with one of the guys there for free style sparring. I hadnt said anything about my experience as a fighter, and he started in with making fun of boxers. I myself have been in boxing for the majority for the past 7 years. he said that traditional boxing is for one minded idiots. I said that karate is for kids and a real boxer would beat his ass any day of the week. I know kinda childish but I was pissed. So I end up borrowing crotch-guard, head gear and gloves from my friend and getting into a session with this guy. Im not gonna lie I had 20lbs at least on him and afew inches. we decided best of 3 matches. He comes out like an idiot with a kick to the ribs (which I catch) took him down and he tapped 20seconds later when I started raining down bombs on his face. sure his head was well protected but not that pretty nose of his. second match he desides kicks arent the best idea, so he starts striking with me, I get afew good licks on him and he went down to a knee, i backed up and called it round. He wanted to continue since he didnt tap even verbally, so I hop back on him trying finish fast and he hits me right on the nose hard. My nose starts bleeding, so I plug it and i t(ko)ed him shortly afterwards. I helped him up and shook his hand. we weight train together sometimes.

sometimes you have to kick a martial artists ass to be their friend :P
