    Yeah,

    It was really Traditional having a club comp,that was FREE for anyone to enter,letting them fight full contact muay thai,amatuer mma,No Gi and bjj depending what style they wanted to fight in (all 4 if they wished),

    Then at the end of the day,a few guys who have been tearing up the mats were awarded new belts with no warning,no grading and CERTAINLY no grading fee.

    So we had a great day,that didn't cost anyone a penny, to have a good old scrap and then gave some belts to the deserving chaps.

    And you accuse it of being 'TMA'.
    This hatred of BJJ is boring and old fashioned now.BJJ has a belt system and belts are awarded to those that deserve them-get over it.

    The 'ceremony' was the chaps getting handed their belts then whipped,which is an old tradition,and one that we keep.

    Simon, you may of spotted the "lol" at the end of the post, it is an internet abreviation for "Laughing Out Loud" and is often used, as in this case, to signify a joke.

    When you are putting your santa list together this year, don't forget to ask him for a sense of humor and a book on how to take thing less seriously... sheesh!

    Its the way i think gradings should be done. I think you appreciate it more when you arn't expecting it. When you get tested you pretty much know you have it, people very rarely fail a test from my experiance. I am not a fan of belt testing especially for a fee. Over here(dallas,tx) they do belt testing that way

    Being used to carlson belt whippings, i assumed that was the norm. Get handed your belt then whipped. I remember the first time i got to see someone get a belt over here, they got handed their belt, then everyone applauds. I am thinking ok belt whippings next, so i am there taking off my belt and folding it up, basicly getting ready to give out some whippings . No one else is doing that and i get a few funny looks lol. Turns out that the only thing exchanged would be a handshake and a congratulations with the person. I miss that tradition of whippings and random at the end of class promotions.

    Congrats to everyone who was promoted, i know you all worked hard for it
