My BELT life today:


9AM: drinking coffee and reading BJJ news:

"Mr. Whoever BLACK BELT under Mr. Some Big Guy did whatever"

"Does receiving a XCOLOR BELT makes you..."

"10 tips to earn you XCOLOR BELT"

"BLACK BELT fraud ..."

I have the sad feeling those are injecting all of the BJJ headlines. Here is a small check for "belt" occurrences in 10 last articles of the most popular magazines:

site belt count black count average per article article count without the word belt
BJJEE News 36 32  3.6 3
BJJ Heroes 38 24  3.8 2

I might fill this table later on with more info you can help me with counting it on your favorite site or if you are admin you can provide me with a nice black belt counting SQL Query like:

select len(@<YOUR ARTICLE>) - len(replace(@<YOUR ARTICLE>, 'belt', ''))

Yet the main conclusion is that you better be a BLACK BELT so that you can land on the news!


12PM: lunch break watching random BJJ clips:

I hardly see a single BJJ highlight without the mandatory scene where some tough guy is folding his whatever belt. Even Luta Livre guys doing NoGi training with their belts on (click). The video descriptions are "beltized" richly too, in case you missed how cool they are.


7PM: finally landing in the BJJ gym:

"This guy XYZ, a XCOLOR BELT did whatever..."

"When do I get my XCOLOR BELT?"

"I tapped a XCOLOR BELT"

Kinda missing the "How can I do the XYZ move" or "How to escape XYZ position" or just "How can I get better" mentality.


10PM: out at a bar with BJJ people:

"Hi I am XYZ what belt are you?"

"When I received XCOLOR BELT I ..."

FUCK OFF! JUST LEAVE ME ALONE WITH MY FUCKING BEER!
