A question about ju-jitzu?

i am already practising american kenpo and tuesday i start ju-jitzu and i was wondering how the belt progression goes as in what belt comes after what belt and if it has any forms or katas


Why are people on the mma sites being such cry babys about Tito losing?

For adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsui there are only 5 belts- White, blue, purple, brown and then black. (there is also a red belt, but that is for only the most important, influential few)

On average it takes about 2 years to reach the first belt up (blue) and an average of 10-12 years with dedicated training to reach black belt.

There are no katas.

You "grade up" as you become able to defeat all the belts of your same rank. If you can submit all the other white belts in your school most of the time, and defeat white belts from other schools in tournaments most of the time, and possibly a blue belt once in a while, then it is time to move up.

Most classes run with a 1/2 hour conditioning, a 1/2 hour of drills and a 1/2 hour of live sparring, and that's pretty much the same everywhere.

UFC rigged?

I think the belt would be the least of your problems. You should focus more on your physical conditioning as Jiujitsu is more of a hands on physically taxing martial art. And the katas you are used to practicing in Kenpo are not taught in most Jiujitsu classes that I know of. What they teach are drills and more drills to prepare you for grappling. As I understand it, belt rankings are awarded according to proficiency of techniques on the mat, not on proficiency on Katas. And prepare to spend most of your time in a prone positon on the mat while hugging a really sweaty guy : P

If you are referring to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which I believe you are, the belt order is the following:


To answer your questions about katas; no, there are no katas in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Unlike most martial arts, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu masters actually promote their students based on their "live" performance of the martial art. Knowledge of the moves and knowing how to perform them simply isn't enough. Observations made during live sparring practice and/or tournaments are the primary ways that masters promote their students.

As far as forms go, there is nothing too special to comment on here. It is mainly a ground-fighting art, so forms are minimal. Most of your move/submissions are going to be performed from a guard position (full, half, butterfly, spider, X, rubber, etc. etc.), or a mount position (rear, side, full). I suppose you could call the many guards and mounts forms, but for the most part it stays pretty conventional and pays attention to technique. Everything in Jiu Jitsu is based on using as little strength as possible to subdue your opponent. Mechanical advantages, weight manipulation, and fulcrums are the basis behind the art.

I practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and I highly reccomend it to anyone. Good luck in your endeavors, and if you have anymore questions feel free to contact me on AOL Instant Messenger at MACH2000.
