So we’re on the precipice of some promotions here at Chuva BJJ, and the people who are getting promoted have seemed a bit reluctant to move up. The thing is if you trained somewhere else, you’d probably be a blue belt already. I’m stingy AF about promotions. The only reason you’re getting a belt or a stripe from me is because you earn it. Even if you don’t feel like you earned it, that’s not up to you. If you go to a tournament and smoke four opponents in less time than five minutes, that new belt is coming. If visiting upper belts are struggling with you or getting tapped by you, eventually I have to bump you up. If you don’t feel like you’re ready for that next belt when I do, I guess it’s time to put the work in to make yourself worthy.
