TRAIN HARD - ACHIEVE GRADES

Brazilian Jiu JItsu

The progress of a student is marked with a series of coloured belts. Unlike other martial arts where a Black Belt marks a person’s proficiency in a style, in Jiu Jitsu the rank of Black Belt is conferred to individuals who have mastered the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

The belts in order are: White, Blue, Purple, Brown and Black. Often schools award four stripes for White through to Brown belt. To achieve a black belt in BJJ typically is between 10-12 years of regular training.

The ranks for children are different. Blue belt and higher ranks have age requirements. Children have the following ranks beginning with White, Grey, Yellow, Orange and Green. Each belt has 4 stripes. These belts are utilized until the age of 16.
