Elev8tion BJJ uses the IBJJF classification for belt rankings.
There are 5 belts for Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
They are based upon attendance, knowledge, demonstration of skills, mat time, attitude, and instructor preference.
Kids who desire are encouraged to compete in tournaments, but is not a requirement nor is belt advancement based on competition performance.
Children are able to start receiving adult belts
once they are over 16 years old.
There are also 5 belts for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Belt advancement varies from school to school.
Kids aged 16 and over are encouraged to join
our affiliate school, Tsunami BJJ.
Both Brett and Sydni still regularly train there.
As you can see, since there are only 5 belts advancement takes a lot of effort and commitment to the art.
Most schools say it takes an average of a couple years to advance belts (given that the student is training 3x week or more).
People who've reached the black belt level take an average of 10 years of consistent training to achieve it.
