Was a great day. My instructor and I went down for a tournament class, immediately walked into the gym to the sound of Renzo teaching. I'm putting on my gear in the locker room and one of the guys comes out and goes "Harry's getting his black belt"...i said WHO??? Wha?
Harry! Black Belt! Renzo. I ditched my stuff and ran out of the locker room. What a great thing to see. I was so happy for him, that's what studying BJJ with friends you love is all about.
After that, got to get trounced through Twelve 7 min rounds lol. Tournament prep is no joke!
Edit: They had just finished training a no - gi class, but my instructor is a gi guy....just does a no - gi class here and there. This isn't a "no-gi" blackbelt LOL
