    I'm hoping I can really buckle down.

    I'm hoping it all comes together
    Don't expect to reach blackbelt anytime soon man haha. Unless the instructor cares more about people's belts than their actual knowledge, the average time to reach blackbelt is at least 6-7 years of consistent training.

    That being said, good luck to you man. I started training last April, took the summer off, and ive progressed tremendously. I love it.

    Na I know I'm pretty experienced in the game and know how it works.

    I'm treating it like going to night school to get a better job or to get my masters.

    I think I'm going to work on it as a career. Get my black belt and open a school in my area.

    I have a lot of weight and fat to lose and a lot of training ahead of me. But after some deep soul searching I realized it's the only thing I truly love doing so I might as well give it a shot..

    Has anyone else followed this path at all?

    Good luck bro! I'd like to do that myself eventually. The timing isnt right for me right now with a new baby. But I enjoy working with the new people at the gym and showing tecniques. I dont know how your school works but my instructor has lots of affiliate schools and thats how a lot of guys get their starts, by renting a space at a local gym or fitness studio and teaching a few classes a week. I hope it works out for you!

    ok just a little update.

    My quest for BJJ greatness was derailed about 3 months ago because of a sprained knee.

    It's on the mend now and I've been hitting the weights pretty hard since then. Feeling pretty good and almost ready to get back out there. exited.
