I recieved my brown belt in Walt Bayless Free Style Jiu-Jitsu last night. It was awarded to me by Justin Ellison.

I haven't been posting regularly lately, but I am back on the playground full time guys! Any questions about No-Gi Grappling just post and I will be around most days to answer. Never used a gi so don't ask!

Great job! One question, though- if you've never used a gi, what point is there in awarding belts?

You don't have fight shorts with loopholes for your belts? :P

Hello All,

I don't post here anymore, but I forgot about this until it was recently brought back to my attention.

Previous to this I had always presented myself as a blue belt, and as most I'm sure know, it takes YEARS to go from blue to brown, not the couple months I posted here. This was intended as a joke/troll post to rile up the folks who'd recognize that.

So for my previous immaturity, I apologize to y'all.

For this even being an issue, I apologize to Pat and Justin, who I hear are pretty steamed at me

So to clarify, I never intended this to be taken seriously, but it was by someone, so I wanted to adress this. My name is Travis, I'm currently a blue belt working diligently towards their purple, and I really hope Ellison doesn't kick my ass over a lame joke/troll job.

Please proceed to flame me, as I heartily deserve it.
