Awesome! I always thought that BJJ would be a cool style.

Now get some proper instructions on how to tie it round your waist with the two loose ends of perfect equal length and hanging elegantly and vertically down.

You will see how important this is when you get your BB and having to make sure those gold bars are perfectly parallel to the floor, Why? because the humble level line of the floor that you step on every day represents the first bar and the first bar on your belt is actually your second bar.

I've been a white belt in Judo for 45 years!!!!!!

Why? after I failed my yellow belt test (by a very pretty Japanese lady examiner from Japan) I was so traumatised I stopped (*hanging head down in shame*) BUT, the guy I did the free sparring section with was so much bigger.

However, for the record, I did not fail any other MA test after that.

I just got my white belt a couple weeks ago. I had an interest when I was young, but I got involved in other things. Now that I'm slightly older with a desk job and limited physical activity, I realized I needed to do something to keep my body in shape. I've had persistantly sore muscles since that day. It's great!
