What color are you?

    Sun, 2006-10-08 18:45 — cshudson

    Just out of curiousity what belt color is everyone when they step out on the mats? And how long has everyone been taking jiu jitsu? also what club are you a member at? Just thought it would be cool to know the different levels of experience that we have out here.

    Currently White Belt
    6-9 months

    knoxville brazilian jiu jitsu

    I started out in freestyle JJ under Todd Medina (Carlson Gracie Black Belt). I never tested for any belts. I also trained under Mike Guyman "Joker" but once again I have never taken a belt test with them. I trained in JJ for 9 years off and on. I do have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do (Ok so thats not that great), and I did Thai-boxing for 18 years (No belts in Thai-boxing). I don't know where to rank myself belt wise so I will stay with white belt. :cool:

    Im a white belt.....I started training in february with a friend in Memphis, but i didnt join an academy until i came back to mexico. I train at thaichampgym in Monterrey, Mexico,(well up until 2 weeks ago when i injured my back) its a Carlos Machado affiliate, and i think we have to go over to the states to do belt tests though.....its weird, i know...lol

    Interesting.
    Your opinion will probably change once you get promoted.

    hello,

    greetings to the crowd. just wondering, if someone has a belt under davidrudman in cambo, how would you put them here? there are several more belt levels in that system, most given depending on level of competition faced, frequency and such, and several given depending on number of those belts they have trained.

    any idea?

    thanks.

    in reguards to lorenzo, many people agree in the fack that if you compete and win (as a white belt) you will advance faster in the ranks. especially if you compete in blue belt torntments.....

    i figure my the end of the y2k7 season ill be a blue belt, pluss that another 400 hours (at least) of class time....so ill be more than ellidable.

    hello,

    either lorenzodamarith or underdog missunderstood the initial question. lorenzodamarith asked how the belts worn by cambo players would be "translated" over to jiujitsu. cambo (under davidrudman) has something like
    eleven belts. jiujitsu has five.

    perhaps lorenzodamarith failed to put this question accross clearly. apologies.

    thanks.
