im old too...im 36 years old bro. when i compete in tournaments, i end up in the masters/seniors division. hehehe. but thats ok. for as long as you enjoy jiujitsu just continue doing it and dont let age stop you. i know some people even start at a very late age in life, even at 50's. yeah.
When i was in high school, i studied shotokan karate and i the highest rank i got was 1st class brown belt, almost black but i got tired of it. going back to those younger days, me too, i wish i started jiujitsu at a young age. i should've been a black belt by now or maybe have won major championships, who knows. we can never know our potential at this point in time of our lives since we're already seniors na. But, when i roll with younger guys, teenagers and those in their 20's, sometimes, i beat them up using gulang and tactics and it feels gooooood..:supergrin: however, the only disadvantage i have is i gas out earlier than the younger caucasian guys. my brazilian friend who is a jiujitsu prodigy himself, told me that if i only i had that endurance and stamina i could be the tasmanian devil himself on the mats. he calls me "taz". This guy submits everyone in our class. he's only 31 but he's that deadly. I roll with him a lot to gauge myself although i tap out a lot against him. he catches me a lot with my favorite choke, the bow and arrow choke. hehehe.i think i submitted him only twice for the years that i have rolled with him. he;s won several major championships including the american nationals. hehehehe. he's that goood.
I wish i can bring my friend in the philippines so he can teach my brother and friends as well.

yes, during sparring sessions. i remember i rolled with this tough jiujitsu brownbelt, ana cordeiro who won several major championships including the worlds, she was so goood. I was playing my open guard and doing my best to prevent her from passing. my dela riva guard is tricky but then ana just went pass by it as if it were nothing. she's that technical and it was a humbling experience.

in some tournaments, specially the youngsters, they mix up both men and women and a lot of times, women win first place. take for example the daughter of my instructor, she was the only female in the bracket and she defeated all men. So, overall, jiujitsu, is both effective for both men and women, young and old. it molds itself to one's body.

sandbagging, really? like how long does it take for one to be promoted to blue belt in the philippines? coz in the u.s. under the new IBJJF rules on promotion, they follow a certain amount of time for a person to be promoted to a higher level provided they attend class at least twice a week and show some level of proficiency/technicality and if you win a lot in tournaments, now, thats the fastest way to earn promotions. I have a good friend here who is brazilian who is really really good, been training in mma for 4 years before deciding to get into formal jiujitsu training. I was ahead of him by several months but then he's that good, winning the gracie nationals, american nationals, he just went pass by me and now he's 4 stripes and is due for promotion for purple belt. he's currently ahead of me by just 1 stripe as a blue belt. they still promote here based on championships won but i think , only a few academies sandbag. i didnt realize that they do sandbag people there. Even the great Rodrigo gracie dont believe in sandbagging anymore.
just my thoughts...:cool:

Even with the new IBJJ rules, it's still up to the discretion of the black belt if the student is ready for the next level or not. In my opinion, it's ok stay in your rank as long as you can, because you can concentrate on getting better before you get to the next level. I think most guys would agree that they don't want to rush to the next rank too fast, since more responsibility comes with the next rank. Back in the day, during the generation of, Murilo Bustamante, Ricardo Cavalcanti, Mario Sperry, and Wallid Ismail, these guys would stay as brown belts for 6 to 7 years before even getting a chance for black belt. If you were to even ask of promotion, that would make your next promotion even further away. I always tell my students, I'd rather be a very good white belt, than a crappy blue belt. It's good to make sure that you're good enough for the next level before being promoted.

yeah i agree that you have to earn the next rank with blood and sweat..that's how we also do it under carlos gracie jr. If a student deserves it, coz some people just pick up real fast and learn fast and begin submitting a lot of people every now and then, then they get promoted. As the blackbelts say, "Rank is everything in jiujitsu" and i agree with them. But you know, some instructors sandbag people in order to win many trophies and what's even worse, is some do it to milk their students some more. I think thats the reason why they came up with the new IBJJF rules on promotion. I mean, personally i think, its unfair , specially in competitions where a student who is rightfully a blue belt competes against a sandbagged bluebelt (who should already be purple belt level), right? that guy should be competing against other purple belts to make things "even/fair" and test the guy's real skills/techniques. I believe thats why they have divisions based on age, rank and weight. Before, during the early days of jiujitsu, they dont have these IBJJF rules, they compete with no time limit and the ultimate goal is submission. so i guess, back then "sandbagging" is indeed an advantage. It takes 10-15 years to get the blackbelt in jiujitsu during the early years and so blackbelts then are like supermen in jiujitsu. guys like the machado brothers, the gracies, terere, jacare..etc.. However, in this new age where natural talents emerged like BJ Penn, Lloyd Irvin, who got their blackbelts in 3 years, and im sure there are a lot of them out there, yet to be discovered, it only goes to show that sandbagging isnt necessary anymore.
Just my 2 cents. :supergrin:
