Little champions and teens belt grading

Most of people outside the Jiu Jitsu don’t know how hard is to earn a stripe even harder a belt !

Going through the ranks is a long and tough process which weeds out the people who are not 100% commited to to Jiu-Jitsu.

Ryron Gracie said that “Only 1% of people that train Jiu-Jitsu will get their black belt”. Is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu the hardest black belt to achieve in all martial arts? And also, what is a the value of a BJJ black belt?
Think about the time when you started training Jiu-Jitsu. Out of all the people who started training at the same time as you, how many are still here and training regularly? Chances are that you have a lot of people coming in training a few months, maybe even get promoted to blue belt and then suddenly disappear. for the undulated crowd there isn’t much of a big deal behind a kid earning a stripe or a belt! In GB Downers Grove we value that tremendously because we know how hard it is become a black belt!

Congratulate to all the little champions and teenagers who passed their belt grading yesterday with flying colors.
