A massive well done done to Lily and Drai on their graduation from White to Grey/White belts in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
The grading syllabus is internationally recognised by the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) the same organization that sanctions many of the top competitions around the world.
Which mean their grading will mean something at every Brazilian Jiu Jitsu club in the UK and abroad.
The grading combined a demonstration of techniques with sparring against live opponents with the 11 year old students grading for a hour, as well as demonstrating plenty of maturity to their older class mates.
The next kids BJJ grading will take place in approximately 6 months. An unusual martial art, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu places great pride on its grading structure. Only adults are allowed to earn the coveted Black Belt which typically takes up to 10 years to earn.
The kids grading works through grey, yellow, orange and green belts before they move onto the adults grading syllabus as a Blue Belt. Again, to preserve the quality of the art and the belt the youngest age for a Blue Belt holder is 16 years of age.
