Today, after seven years of training I was promoted to brown belt by Ricardo “Rey” Diogo, who is a Carlson Sr bb. Feels good not gonna lie!
Damn it... I was going to go today, but it was just impossible.
Congrats! Dookie belt was the most pressure one though.
What an accomplishment. Congrats.
Awesome, I'm guessing as a Carlson guy, he doesn't give them out easily
Congratulations!!! That’s awesome!
Great work, grind hard to that black, you got this.
Thanks everyone. Honestly black feels like eons away. I plan on competing more in this belt, but honestly I am not a competitor type. I think pushing myself outside of my comfort zone will really be the best thing to understand the game more. I feel like I don't know any Jiu Jitsu.
Rey definitely does not hand them out. Shit, he held me at blue belt for 4 years and I was training 6x\week with the only break coming from tearing my ribs (8 weeks recovery.) That's why this one was a surprise to me, I thought he would for sure hold me to at LEAST 3 years but I am not complaining!!
Awesome accomplishment. Congrats!
Congrats!!! Brown is a big achievement!
I’m at the twelve year mark this month of being a purple belt (long complicated story). One day I’ll get there!
