BJJ - Jiu Jitsu Belts

What are the Jiu Jitsu Belts? BJJ belts typically include the white belt. The Jiu Jitsu white belt is the first belt in JiuJitsu. The belt does not require any prior knowledge of bjj, and is the belt you begin your Jiu Jitsu journey with.

The second bjj belt is the blue belt. The Jiu Jitsu blue belt is typically obtained after 1-2 years of training in Jiu Jitsu. The blue belt represents a solid knowledge of several different basic and intermediate Jiu Jitsu moves.

The third Jiu Jitsu belt is the purple belt. The purple belt is often time obtained after 1-2 years of solid training at the blue belt level. A Jiu Jitsu purple belt has a solid grasp of all of the basic and intermediate Jiu Jitsu moves, and is more advanced with transitions and technique.

The fourth belt in Jiu Jitsu is the brown belt. The brown belt can be obtained in 1-3 years of training as a purple belt. A Jiu Jitsu brown belt is an advanced Jiu Jitsu martial artist, working to obtain his or her black belt. They have a solid knowledge of Jiu Jitsu techniques from nearly every situation that they may find themselves in.

The fifth belt in Jiu Jitsu is the black belt. The Jiu Jitsu black belt is an honor to obtain, and the time to acquire one varies greatly depending upon training and individual skill level.

Cobrinha - Motivated to Stay in the Game for Good

Have you heard, Cobrinha is back for good? As quoted by Gracie Magazine, he thought he would have no time to train or compete after opening up his school in Los Angeles in 2010. He says that his main motivation to stay in the competitors ring came from his students, and would not let him come with any excuses as to why he should not be getting his time in on the mat. Cobrinha has made great accomplishments in his Jiu Jitsu career, with 4 World and Pan Ams Gold Medals (Gi), and now with 3 No-Gi Worlds Gold Medals, after taking the victory in this year’s 2011 World No Gi competition in California.
