Funny thing about that day is I wasn't expecting to be receiving the belt, because up to that point I had only spent a little under 10 months as a brown belt. Although I wasn't expecting the belt, I not for a second questioned if I was deserving to be wearing that belt, firstly because I was receiving my belt from two legends of the sport, then because of my teaching experience at graciefighterpleasanthill, and then obviously for the fact that I had just done an amazing job at Worlds as a brown belt.
Many people these days are worried about the time they spend in each belt, after a certain period spent in each belt people start to ask what they can do to move to the next one, my answer is always the same: "just keep training", because if that person hasn't been promoted to the next belt it's because someone more qualified than him doesn't believe that him/her is ready to move to the next level.
There's a huuuge difference between BEING a black belt and WEARING one. https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/21879756_349680402141659_1507062118170492928_n.jpg2017-09-21
