Thread: Got My Blue Belt Tonight

  1. #1

    Default Got My Blue Belt Tonight

    My instructor (Darius Sainee, Alliance Frankfurt) surpised me tonight by awarding me with my Blue Belt. I'm over the moon. Albeit a little blue from the whipping.

    Now I have to enter the blue belt category at the Abu Dhabi trials this weekend. On the competitor list I was already in showing as in the blue belt category (because I dont think any white belts my weight were registered). Has anyone had any experince of being promoted just before a tournament? If so, did you let the organisers know in advance, or did you change on the day?

    I think it's separate weight divisions and mixed absolutes? I think!

    Thanks guys.

    As far as I understand the weight divisions are white, Blue and Purple/Brown/Black and the absolute combines the white and blue.

    I will e-mail them in the morning and let them know. Just in case a white belt registers and they move me back down.

    Congrats. If I had an old tatty blue belt you could use to intimidate your opponents, I'd give it to ya. But I don't.

    Old tatty purple belts, on the other hand... ^_-

    See you out there, man!

    Take care,
