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?
