The last week or so, I’ve found myself one of the more experienced students in the beginners class. There’s still a solid block of blue belts and more senior white belts ahead of me, but about two thirds of the class have been significantly newer.
This feels distinctly odd, not least because I haven’t really been aware of it happening. I feel I’ve turned around once and all these new people have spontaneously appeared!
Unfortunately, all of this newfound seniority hasn’t done anything to improve my jiu-jitsu, which remains very much a work in progress. ;->
