Blue Belt

The blue belt represents a significant milestone in your journey through the world of Jiu-Jitsu. As the first belt you earn after the white belt, it’s only natural to seek clarity on what it takes to achieve this rank and understand the process involved. In this guide, we will outline the minimum requirements for attaining your blue belt, helping you navigate the path towards this prestigious achievement


To earn your blue belt at our martial arts studio, we have set certain minimum requirements that we expect you to fulfill. These requirements are designed to ensure that you have a solid foundation and understanding of Jiu-Jitsu before progressing to the next level. The following are the minimum requirements:


– 1.5 to 2 Years of Consistent Training

– A minimum of 150 Classes

– Knowledge of Fundamental Moves and Positions



As a blue belt you need a solid grasp of the fundamental techniques and positions in Jiu-Jitsu. The details of these moves and positions can be found in this document. We are in the process of uploading videos of all of the moves on our Youtube channel.

Criteria for Consideration for Promotion

Consistency– Exhibiting consistent attendance, attitude, performance, and adherence to gym policy.


Selflessness– Contributing to the improvement and progress of fellow students. Cultivating the team environment.


Effort/Focus– Showing up with focus, determination, and training goals (not just going through the motions). Training with intention.


Knowledge– Understanding the necessary techniques and being able to display them without resistance.


Application– Able to perform skills/ techniques amongst peers (size, age, skill) under resistance.


Attendance– Meeting minimum class requirements. Also consideration for sparring and spending time on development outside class. Consistency is important.


Attitude– Welcoming, helpful, coachable, respectful, etc..


Achievements– Competition (Success amongst peer group).


Emotional Maturity/Control/Humility– Controlling emotions/frustrations and limiting physical and emotional reactions while sparring against someone newer, spastic, smaller but better (maintaining technique over strength). Knowing when to increase intensity and when to let someone work. Ability to take the wins with the losses while showing grace. Allowing yourself to explore new techniques while sparring as well as forcing yourself to spend time in bad positions. Avoiding the “win at all costs” attitude.


Mental Toughness- Ability to increase your threshold and tolerance for discomfort. Improving decision making under fatigue and managing physical and mental pressure.


Personal Growth– Progress from your baseline ability.
