I thought you meant twice a week then, not once every two weeks. wow, thats not a lot of sparring. 2 years of Once every two weeks (and say its a solid hour of sparring) is only sparring for 52 hours for blackbelt. I spar 4 hours a week at the least, so thats 13 weeks training for blackbelt at my rate. jesbus........... edit - another post of yours says you spar for 15 minutes, so thats 13 hours of sparring, which is less then a month of sparring at my own rate, that's not a good comparison.
