I train out of Joslin's Karate in Ontario, Canada
Just strating training again, stopped at a brown belt
Would love to get my black belt, but with university it's going to be a pain in the ass to say the least

Oh man, I would love to learn graci BJJ, some of their techniques are over my head though, we practice a few of their chokes

And to the guy who wants to start, it's really never to late to learn, its a great past time and keeps you in great shape

i dont train but yeah being MMA fanatic i want to learn it someday.

i dont know but i only have a desire to learn No-gi Jiu jitsu like Eddie Bravo. the reason behind that is because traditional BJJ would be too slow paced n stalling.

it's bit off to topic but i would rather take Judo than BJJ if Gi is involved. just because of sweet judo throws. the thing about judo is that flexibility will beat strength and small person could beat bigger opponent (well i guess that goes same with any grappling because the uses of leverage against joints which no one cant train to turn it into some kind of iron)

*my favorite BJJ practioners are Ricardo Arona, Big Nog, Marcelo Garcia, Shinya Aoki, Demian Maia, and Souza Jacare.

i used to train bjj but i couldnt keep up with the $100 monthly fee and didnt want to get cauliflower ear. it was pretty bad decision on my part, but at the end of the day my ears dont look like frankenstein.

anyways i keep up with abu dhabi and enjoy watching technical grappling. my favorite include roger gracie, demian maia, and ricardo arona.

yea it was unlimited and a great deal to. but my buddy got it while getting swept. he drained it properly and it still looked pretty deformed. the cartilage apparently doesn't heal and retains some of the shape. so if you're consistently draining your ear the cartilage is still vulnerable to damage and mis-shaping. anyways im going to start training again soon with headgear. il look like a douche but whatever.

If your laughing at the fact this dude thinks he has a brown belt and can get a black belt then....cosign. No way in hell, BJJ isnt karate. You actually have to do some real shit to get awarded a brown belt.

ive heard it usually takes about 4 years to get Blackbelt.

i cant remember clearly but i believe BJ Penn got his blackbelt in 2yrs...

actually now the average is 5-6 years depending on who you train with. 6-8 months for blue, 1 year for purple, 2 years brown and then the rest until black. after every 3 years you add a stripe (1 stripe first degree black belt etc...) to your belt.

yea bj is a beast, fastest american to receive his blackbelt. theres videos of him tapping out judo black belts as a whitebelt.

I've been training BJJ since July or something, and I absolutely love it! I'm currently just a white belt, but hoping to get by blue around february-march maybe. I train at Stavanger MMA-Center in Norway, under Master Felipe Mota (Akxe BJJ)

whitebelt, training under Cristiano Marcello at CM System in Curitba

jaded
There is a Gracie place here in town, but my friend told me it's ridiculously expensive. Koscheck has one of his AKA gyms here, but I don't think they are a strict BJJ gym.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it
