Kind of a spur of the moment thing. I got promoted and my belt is shredded, so I decided to treat myself. It’s an Isami, it’s being made in Japan. You get to pick all the options --it’s quite fun.
I really debated-- back and forth-- if I should put the “professor bars” on it. I see guys with no school who don’t teach get their BB on day one with the professor bars on on it. It’s really lost it’s meaning tbh and become mostly a “fashion” thing. But, even so, I’ve taught full time for years and have my “own” school, so… I got the bars
But now, the belt hasn’t even arrived yet and I have serious buyer’s remorse and feel like a pompous a-hole. I regret it. I’m not sure why other than it just feels too flashy for me.
I know, I know… 1st world BJJ problems.Woe is me.
