Neil and Christian training
Here we have a group-photo from the last day at the BJJ-course, as you can see it looks like some guys got their new belts before the photo?
See the full story below…
When you get your new belt in BJJ there is a tradition of your buddies whipping you with there belts to congratulate you, there is a saying: ”If you dont like the guy, dont hit hard…” (you get the point)
First out was Neil, he was so quick that Billy had a hard time catching him with the camera
After Neil had made his walk of pain, we introduced the concept of "taking it like a man". Thats why you can see Christian (and the guys after him) walking slowly down the corridor.
Wayne having a good time on Christians behalf
David McLaughlin walking towards his blue belt
Tap or Snaps Dave Morris taking a beating from Robbie Olivier
Christian and Neil bashing Dave (according to Dave this is because they cant tap him in class)
Mark "the farmer" getting whipped
Finally its Robbies turn! (btw. Robbie, can you see who that is swinging at you from your blind angle?)
All the new belts in Ripley at the BJJ course, congrats to newly promoted bluebelts Neil, Christian, Dave, and David and to purple belts Mark and Robbie!
