Lol. Like I said the gym I was at had its own belt system. Though the instructor was a brown belt and then black belt under Rickson by the time I left, he always made everyone test under another very high level Riskon representative. The times I have popped into other BJJ gyms this has always been a very interesting thing for me. As most just think I know nothing and I have a hard time explaining why I can hang with, if not get the better of blue belts but never can say I have any actual rank in the system. Would love to get back to BJJ some day but as for now priorities are else where.

I was under the impression that if you compete it would work the other way round. Is that wrong or just more dependent on the coach?

In our school competition has no bearing on how long it takes to get a belt. We don't have a competition team or a fight team. We are one team ^^

Im aiming for blue after 2 years. Even though I have a bit of experience behind me, I'm treating it as starting from scratch. Also aiming for 2 classes a week when I can. If I can get more in I would. But sometimes due to work I end up with 1 class in a week or none at all.

With prior grappling experience, consistent training, and inteligent/directed rolling thats definitely doo able, at twice a week.

Youve wrestled before yes? in which case your turtle game and base should be pretty good already.

If you try and concentrate on guard and sweeps to get on top to start every/most rolls that could be a good way to avoid the pitfalls of being a better wrestler learning bjj.
