Hi everyone,

first time posting. I will be in troop 12 starting July 8th. I was just wondering if anyone in my troop or others during my time there is into BJJ. I was thinking about bringing my gi with me if I can find some people to practice with. It has been about a year since I rolled with anyone but would love to get started again. I am an advanced white belt so if you are anything above blue I will probably bore you to death but it can't hurt to practice a bit while at depot.

Probably not worthwhile to bring it to be honest. You’ll get an issued gi for your training here and while it’s advantageous to get extra training in, it’s much more worthwhile to spend your very limited “free time” to either just relax or practice the skills they’ll be teaching and testing you on.

Hello,

Has anyone had to re-do CPR/First Aid while waiting for security clearance? Mine expires in early October and I was informed Friday by recruiting that troops are now being filled for September and October.

Thank you!
Definitely get it re-done man. It needs to be valid for the duration of training. Mine was still valid from when I first applied but have upgraded to medical first responder and health care provider(cpr but for people in the medical field) and sent that to them when I reinserted.

I applied yesterday, I would've applied sooner but I had to wait 30 days after LASIK. Currently I am in Ontario and I know the application can take a very long time and the mean time I want to continue my education but I would have to move to BC for that. If during the application process I move what kind of negative impact does it put?

As long as there is a legitimate reason for the move, then I dont see any negative impact for your file. If you move during your application process and after you submit your selection package, just make sure you inform your recruiting coordinator, and then he or she will send you a form for the updated info.

What do you mean by ‘legitimate reason?’
People move all the time especially in a process that is so long and sometimes seems never ending.

I wouldn't listen to a bunch of applicants here, phone your recruiting centre. If something changes update them. My things changed(jobs address, refs, etc..) and I got a troop offer. Live your life.

I assume you mean from when I applied to when I was offered a troop date; it was 11 months.

Legitimate reason refers to any reason that you can explain, from as serious as a life change to as casual as you want to move around.

And what makes an illegitimate reason?

EncryptoID live your life. Do what makes you happy. It’s a very long road and you need to live your life as if you never applied. Nothing is ever guaranteed.

I would guess it would be considered illegitimate to move because, for example, you owed too much money to too many people in your previous area... or to quit an embarrassing situation you've put yourself in... moving in order to try and elude certain consequences or whatnot, etc

That's my own opinion on what would be considered an "illegitimate" reason to move.
