    Yes of course it is? some people train for fitness and self defence others train for sport. I'ts quite possible to get to black belt with out competing

    John Danaher.

    There, I've invoked the BJJ equivalent of Godwin's law. This thread can now die peacefully in its sleep.

    Hi Gareth

    They would have to compete some more and learn to deal with the pressure.

    I am kinda having trouble with this kind of methodology if a paying student just wishes to learn BJJ for self defence is he left at white belt in your club? or just pushed to the back of the que as someone who just helps to pay the club rent?. I think theres more to a belt than how many medals you have

    Don't let it worry you. If you are progressing, but your instructor won't promote you purely because you don't compete, then you'll just be a white belt who can tap higher grades.

    Fine by me.
