Yeah I got my third stripe on my blue belt this past weekend. At least I think it was this past weekend. It was a Saturday. And I followed it up with an Oktoberfest. So it had to be this past weekend.
The academy is still small, but it allows us semi-privates for every class, so I'm not complaining.
I got my wife's cousin into jiu jitsu, but he's out in Ohio, so I don't really get to reap the training benefits of that one too often. Though it did give us an out to go train at a place in Denver during a family reunion. That was slick.
I also got another friend to start training. He has one stripe on his white right now, so that will begin paying off soon. Hopefully by the time he gets his blue, I'll have something resembling a top game.
