FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
At Marra Senki BJJ Academy safety is paramount. Accidents may happen, however, lack of seriousness during training and the resultant careless application of technique or counters contribute greatly to injury. Careless practice is disrespectful to the spirit of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and we do not allow it.
As with other martial arts, the progress of a student is marked with a series of colored belts. The belts in order are: White, Blue, Purple, Brown and Black. We award four stripes for White belt and often award stripes for Blue belt through Brown belt.
Typically, it takes anywhere from 8 to 15 years to attain the rank of Black Belt in Jiu-Jitsu. Each belt takes about 2-5 years of dedicated practice.
