 Just keep at it! You'll get there! It's a long tough road, but it's worth every bump, bruise, sweat and blood shed! Nothing in the world compares to the feeling.

 ahhh thanks bro!!!  I can only imagine the feeling of when you finaly got it. 

I'll keep tryin! : )     Started in the 90's but was inconsistant and took a long time off.  It always bugged me that I never stuck with it so I  Finally got my blue last year and now I'm trying to go 4-5x a week.
Whether I get another belt or spend the rest of my days as a blue I just love the art and enjoy every day of training that I can.

 It was an awesome feeling. I man enough to say that I cried! I broke down and cried. It was a long road and I have an even longer road ahead and more goals to set.

I started in the 90's too. It was such a new art, it was difficult for people to stick with it because it was so new. Very little going on back then. Now with all the major tournaments, the ufc, time, and the love people have for BJJ, it's busier than ever! More things for people to strive for and more places to do it at.

Just keep that love and always keep an open mind and learn. You do those 2 things, you'll be there in no time.

Is that your real last name? If so, you should've gotten a black belt when you were born!

Wow - I started this thread 5 years ago and totally forgot about it.

I was a purple belt back then, and this September I received my BB from Sean Burke. So I guess I can add my name to the list :)

MikeCimm - I rolled with either you or your brother at the New Breed Subculture Gi Drive. Congrats to your bro on his BB. I had no idea you guys were half filipino.
