Promoted To Blue Belt

I took the test on Saturday, and ran the gauntlet on Monday evening class.  Frankly, a bit nervous, first I have to , or do my best to step up to the next level.  Rolling with Joey Collins, a blue belt, that is harder than some purple belts, and he always dominates me.  I have been trying to figure out what I been doing wrong, I think its just going to be more mat time for me to get an understanding how to roll with that kind of body type.  Then I rolled with Ian McPherson , and two others.

Zae said something to me a few days before,  when you are regular training against world champions, remind yourself you are rolling against world champions.  It puts things in prospective.  I am a hobbiest, do this for health, enjoyment, and its 100x better than drinking and going out all the time.  At least I do something productive.

On related news, apparently, if you bring a friend to alliance you get a free private.  Anyone want to get me a free private can help me take me up on this offer. allianceatlanta.blogspot.com or http://www.alliancebjj.com

I want to mention a "shout out" to Edward, he got his blue the other day, and he worked VERY VERY hard for it.  It makes me happy to see him get that.  Congrats Edward.
