Got my blue belt!!
Finally got my blue belt in BJJ!! I have been out of training for 2 years due to personal issues and started back in Feb at 250 lbs with 4 stripes on my belt (earned them in 2007 & then had to drop out). On May 16th I won the silver in the Louisiana State Championships at 219 lbs. Got my Blue belt on May 23, then fought in the MS State Championships on May 30th as a blue belt. I was 212 lbs there, but there was no one my size in the master's division (over 30 yrs old..I am 38), so I had to fight the big boys (250 lbs average) in the adult division (under 30 yrs old) and won the silver in the Blue belt division there as well. Starting to feel good about myself physically again!! Btw, I was 207 lbs this evening!! I am 6'2"
