Here are Dominion BJJ we have BJJ promotions bi-annually. Each Spring and Fall students are eligible to receive stripes or a new belt.
What do stripes mean? A stripe on your belt represents your progress towards the next belt. As a white belt, your stripes measure how far you have come versus your first day. In Jiu-Jitsu it is important not to compare yourself and your progression against other students in class. Everyone is different – students start with different athletic abilities, you learn and absorb knowledge differently, some people have natural aggression and some people are very passive. How well you do sparring is only part of what determines your progress. Other things to consider are consistence attendance, timeliness to class, how good of a partner you are to your teammates, and more.
“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.” -Dwayne Johnson
