Make sense as there are the naturally talented and also athletic beasts who have come in to grappling and got blues or purples in less than 18 months.
I don't think any +18 months white belts should worry, most UK "advanced" divisions are 95% white and blue belts anyway.
It's not really for my benefit. Most of my guys who have won grappling events including your won, beating blues and purples along the way, have no grade so are officially "white belts". Maybe I should've kept my mouth shut and sneaked the whole team in to the novice division
Hope that all makes sense.
