Wow - congratulations!
I've only trained for half as long as you, but it's given me enough perspective to be able to say that the people I admire most are those who have persevered and trained through thick and thin.
Kudos to you my friend.
Thanks bro! You can do it!

I took a 10 year break so I know how hard it is to get back to it. Congratulations!
Yeah man, it was tough as hell and VERY daunting for me to get back on the mats. I'm glad you and I did! Respects!

I know it was for me. I developed the most at purple as well. Congrats PTM, you got an awesome story brother!
Yeah man it was quite a challenge buti t's crazy when everything you've drilled and practiced and practiced starts flowing in & out of each other. A whole new appreciation from the art renewed the drive to keep getting better. HOWEVER.... The better I got the tougher the higher belts would go on me, that part I wasn't expecting lol. Oh man.....the ass kickings by the browns and blacks were crazy, but all for the best.
"We gotta treat you like a player now."
Was both a great compliment and a scary realization.
Another 5 and you can get a stripe
Thanks bro. I could only hope I could be that lucky. :)
