Hey guys, I've been very busy with work, and coaching football and judo but I just wanted to report that I got my brown belt this weekend from one of the top blackbelts around.

I was terrible when I started and it's been a long journey but God has blessed my health and blessed what I call "recess" play for me. Slow and steady in all areas of life will get you where you want to go.

One down one more to go. Hope all are doing well.

Thx. That was my brown belt in Bjj. Probably wasn't clear. One more to go!

 Congrats Rooster.  Especially since you are an old man like me and the body doesn't always do what the mind tells it to do.

Great job, man! I'll live vicariously through you since I'm one of the old men Ridge mentioned whose body wouldn't hold up.

thx ridge. The body is challenging. bulging disks, shoulder surgery on the left, the righ shoulder now rebelling, and sucky recovery.

But, all that being said, it's helped me to become more technical. I was a weight lifter and emotional grappler, and I'm finding longevity in technique and being calm and of course, making sure you pick good parterns to do technique and sparring with.

Z, I got my brown belt from world class bjj competitor, coach and mma fighter Dustin "Clean" Denes. I'd like to get my black belt from him as well. Relentless bjj and good motivator.

 Awesome.

I recieved my blue belt from Rickson in 1998 and haven't looked back.

Whatever that means...

z, Clean trained with both Noguerio brothers. He's a Ricardo De la Riva blackbelt but split time training with Carlson, and has trained with all the legends of Carlson (Sperry, Bustamante, etc.)

You can youtube him. He taps Marcelo as a brown belt. Tough, and technical bjj player and mma fighter.
