sorry to kill your high... but that would be really really lame....

your girl will not think that is cool or romantic...

unless you are proposing to your training partner?

"It was great MOM.... He got his brown belt...."

"oh its a Martial arts thing..... anyways...he got his brown belt and then asked me to marry him"

"Oh?..... how...... uh...... romantic....i guess"

oh well, it was just an idea. I think its quite nice actually, it obviously wouldnt end there I would take her to nyc to a spa. I dont think it is how you do it, its catching them off guard. I dunno maybe it is a lame idea, then again so is plastering marry me "insert name" on a baseball stadium billboard when most girls could care less about baseball.

Aleck911 - I say do it.

Thank You ^. Its really not about Jiu Jitsu, its about it being an important time in my life. I want her to share in that night with something completely unexpected. Sure I could take her on a carriage ride through central park but i think that is so cliche and predictable.

She'll always wonder why you didn't wait until your black belt promotion to pop the question.

I would do it when you are leaving the place with her

"wow I have worked so long on getting this, this is one of the best days of my life, it could be the BEST day of my life...

pull out ring

Will you?"

then more romantic and shit

I'm told that I am an extremely unromantic person, and I think that sounds lame. Seems too much about you and not at all about her. I'm also confused as to how you got to the point that you think catching the woman off guard is the important part of the proposal?

How does your girlfriend feel about you training? If she is more or less indifferent it is a terrible idea.

If she is really into it or also trains than maybe ok, though I still think I would go with something else. Just seems to convenient.

 Hmmmm, I don't think I am for this idea. You obviously know the situation best, but I would rather take her to a nice restaurant after it, she will think it is for the belt promotion, and you get the surprise anyway in a more romantic setting. Also, this lets you enjoy each moment on its own, instead of them blending together. 

Congrats, and hope you have a great night.

Why not follow up with a honeymoon at the Pan Ams? Nothing says romance like sitting in a gym all day watching men in pajamas get yelled at arbitrarily for no reason.

 I agree with some of the othe fellas, sounds like a self-centered proposal. The proposal is supposed to be about her, and whats important to her. Sorry if it sounds harsh, obviously your intentions are good. Just do it at a venue that is appropriate for what she would like and you will be fine.

Don't do this in that setting, in front of all these sweaty guys, after having her wait for an hour watching guys roll... If you want a surprise element, find a different way... Just saying... And there's two big things going on at once. One is your brown belt promotion, you don't want this thing to take away the steam of the proposal...

I would think it would just be awkward and uncomfortable for everyone else if you did it like that

If your near NYC there are a lot more places to take her that would knock her socks off!

Maybe some of it could be a little to cliche, but why not find something cool around the city.

Do it on News Years Eve in Times Square as the ball drops!

Agree. Proposing while shes on the toliet would catch her off gaurd as well but it doesnt make it the way to go.

I spent the last 6 years on MMA.tv, when I find a girl I will purpose to her here, and then use the email function to let her know. It will be so cool!

Unless she trains with you and its something that the two of you share, I would avoid proposing in that setting.

Think about it man; there are two moments (and only two) in a girl's life that they dream and fantasize about from age 3 on... Those two moments are their proposal and their wedding.

Both should be about her, not you and your hobbies.

If you really want to combine something special for her with an important moment in your life, then plan something for later in the day/evening, but don't do it at the gym.

BTW, I just checked with the wife and she said "Hell no!"
