Day 1 vs Day 1.  No it’s pointless

8 month white belt vs day one, ok 

Still pointless. Actually a better chance of someone getting injured due to 8 month ego.

Bot - I love watching me some white belt vs white belt action at local tournaments. The lack of knowledge combined with the desire to impress their teammates really does wonders. Watching two white belts grab each other’s sleeves trying to savagely battle rope each other’s arms off was one of my favorite moments as a tournament spectator.

great post!

Of course they should, if only for the entertainment value.

 

i heard one white belt say to another white belt before a roll.  “Are there any injuries I should be aware of?”   I about died 

awesome

I'd prefer < 6 months not roll with each other because of injury and frustration. But there are a lot of small schools and new schools. Depends on the situation.
