What Techniques Do You Need to Know for Your Blue Belt
That prompted a few people to request a discussion of the next step in the BJJ journey: Bluebelt. If we think of the whitebelt as a time of fleshing out the skeleton of the positional hierarchy and learning the mechanics of basic techniques, I would sum up the Bluebelt as a time of experimentation. By the time your instructor has tied a bluebelt around your waist, you should have a clear understanding of the positional hierarchy and ability to use the basic techniques during a match against a fully resisting opponent. White belts gaze at your new blue belt with envy and turn their intensity up when they roll with you wishing to measure their own quest for bluebelt by their ability to hang with you. This period is when the bluebelts knowledge of techniques will really explode! What they are referring to is the excitement to learn all of the variations of techniques from each position.
BJJ Blue Belt Requirements, Struggles And Expectations
Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a relatively disorganised and highly variable sport. This is most evident when you start looking at belt promotion requirements. The belts in BJJ go white, blue, purple, brown and black, with the first four belts typically having 4 stripes each and the black belt having 10 degrees. In the video below Rob Biernacki and I tackle the topic of BJJ beginner progressions and how to get ranked in BJJ starting with getting your stripes and your blue belt.
