I'm a BJJ Blue Belt training at Origin BJJ Newcastle, under Ian Malone. I've been training (consistently) since September 2013 and I compete as often as I'm able to. I've tried several times to start a BJJ blog, but I've never been happy with the domain name, and not had much to blog about. I was inspired to register this domain name by a Reddit poster who said that blue belt is the 'unnecessary turtling' phase, because you start playing with open guard and then end up having to turtle a lot because you keep getting your guard almost passed.

That holds true for me, and I like the domain name, so here goes!

I'll be blogging about my competition plans, general BJJ tips, training and lifestyle stuff. The usual. Hopefully it'll be of some use to people who are just getting started in BJJ or who are looking for a bit of motivation.
