Sometimes I'm Just Stupid

Alright, Dev. You can say, "I told you so." :)

I had a blast tonight with the girls who visited. There was no animosity between us and our grappling wasn't intense at all. We were just rolling and talking and having a good time. They invited us to come to their school sometime soon and I'm really looking forward to getting to train with them again.It was really nice to get to roll with some other girls. They are right at my skill level too so it was challenging and fun at the same time.



So, I admit it. I was being stupid for worrying so much about it. You may all flog me via the internet. ;)

There's also one other thing I almost forgot to mention....

TA-DA!







I am so excited, though at the same time I don't really feel like a blue belt. I feel like a white belt who is getting away with wearing a blue belt. Congrats to Phil and Jenn, who also got their blue belts, and to Anthony who got his purple belt!! And thanks Ben and Fabio for making BJJ so much fun! You guys are amazing instructors!

Going through a belt promotion at Fabio's is definitely an experience. At our school, everyone who is at your rank or high gets to do three take-downs on you. Needless to say, I am taking some Ibuprofen tonight. lol. Actually, everyone was really nice with the take-downs.

very nice allie. keep up the good work.

i am glad you had a good time with the other ladies too. not too many women at my academy. i know they appreciate it when more than one of them are in class at a time.

Cool! Congrats - when I first saw the pic with a blue belt, I thought I'd missed a post. ;)

I don't think anybody ever feels ready for the next belt (unless you're standing on the podium at the Mundials or something like that). The first thing that went through my head when they called me up for a blue was "oh shit, already?"

Good work! purple next! . Ive noticed that it takes most people a little bit of time to feel comfortable with their belt promotion. Ive heard of one takedown each but 3!!! that would be murder at a big academy.
