    no update for over a year, then they decide to update the page to share this news. down the page there's someone getting demoted from brown to purple.

    does this happen often in bjj?

    I didn't know you could be demoted?

    ^^^ What he said? Is there specific criteria involved in being demoted?

    For example: say if someone was awarded a purple belt 10+ years ago and for whatever reason hadn't trained for a long long while. Said person then appeared back at training and was being completely tooled by blue belts would the instructer be forced to demote them?

    I was under the impression a belt in BJJ was for life kind of thing... Much like a puppy!

    Demotion is not on if you ask me. If you earn a belt then you've earned it for life.

    I've read about guys from smaller academies getting their BBs, then going to a bigger gym, getting smashed by all the Black Belts, some of the Browns and decided to put themselves down a belt. Can't remember names or sources though.
