    I think I was getting confused with BJJ where their top grade is 7th degree or something. Or maybe I was thinking of 9th or 10th. How did you manage to make a high level international team without getting your 2nd Dan? Presumably you have enough points to get 2nd Dan if you compete that much, so are you just not bothering with the theory part or what?
    I was in the England Talent Development squad (made of the top players from the England squad).

    I was only 15/16 at the time, I was still a blue or brown belt while I was in the squad.

    I only converted from 18th mon to 1st kyu (junior grade brown belt to senior grade brown belt) after I had left the squad. (You need to be 1st kyu to get points)
