Thread: Blue Belts?

    I started in July09, I had had some grappling experience as a teenager, but was very much out of shape when I went back training. I trained 3-4 times a week and got mine from Victor in December09.

    I got mine in 6 weeks.

    However, I did have many years of no gi / MMA and a black belt in Judo.

    I think it depends on the coach I have seen some terrible blue belts and some blue belts that could easy be purple

    on average ( sand bagging/ holding back, comp results exempt )

    12-18 months IMO with CONSISTANT training.

    Is it realistic to reach a blue in 6 months - 1 year training 1-2 times a week? if you have a decent grappling knowledge previously?

    Are you sure Aaron and Matt are not putting seeds of thought into your head with their bjj training??

    I am still on white after 23 months.

    For the last year I have trained about 3 sometimes 4 times a week and more recently have started having private sessions.

    I had a little grappling experience before I started as I did judo as a kid and more recently a green belt in trad JJ.

    My wife laughs when I say I am of training, she thinks I am having an affair.

    But seriously, I am not in a rush for Blue, I'd rather be a half decent white belt than a below average blue :-)

    you don't get a choice. Besides everyone is a below average blue at some point, It's just some people were a white belt at the time.....

    Royce was notorious for giving out blues at seminars. Don't know whether that's still the case.

    There is such a gulf between blue belts. At my current club they have a very high bar for blue belts which is way beyond the fundamentals
