Heard that a black belt is quite an achievement BJJ. Impressing.

I hope RSF played some small role on your journey to black belt.

It did Greg, - talking to you and Pete on that thread and discussing jiujitsu ideas was all part of the mix that kept me going at white belt.

No - we don't do that.

I've spent the week rolling with two 4th degree black belts and getting smashed repeatedly though - so that was a kind of a gauntlet :)
