Purple Belt? Purple Belt ?? PURPLE BELT!!!!!

There's a new gang in town.

Last night Big Boss Man graded Matt Jee, Manik, Graeme and myself to Purple Belt. He also added 2 white stripes to Soultrain's and Kacey's purple belts. I wasn't going to make a big deal out of this but the Facebook, text, email and Twitter response I've had from friends and family has been overwhelming. I even had a congrats text from the editor of Fighter's Only Magazine (You can't say I didn't warn you Hywell)

To all I say, thank you for all the very kind words. I appreciate it a lot.

JockeRKC: Many thanks bro
Meerkatsu: Many thanks, we were joking about forming a gang with a secret handshake or walk or something. I do think I'll see this Part Time theory thru tho! :)

We all work so hard to get there when anyone we know makes it, it feels like we have too in some way. I've very happy for you.

@Jason: Wow that's such a heart-felt comment. Thank you Jason. I really appreciate it.

You are right though. Even though BJJ / Grappling is an individual sport, there is a great sense of community which you don't find in many other individual or even team sports. I doubt tennis players leave comments like the ones I've received on each other's blogs :)

Once again. Thanks you and keep up your great blog.
