    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    When is a BJJ black belt allowed to use the title of 'Professor'?

    I've always thought it was reserved for 2nd degree Black Belts and above. But I know this newbie BB that's rockin' the mantle of Professor.

    Is he as full of **** as I think?

    The only people I've heard called professor were labeled that by someone else, such as Pedro Sauer. None of his black belts use the title, nor would they let you call them that if you tried.

    My guess is that it's an ego trip.

    A BJJ black belt can use the title of professor, after; completion of a doctoral thesis, a probabtionary period of 3-7 years as an assistant professor, earning tenure, through a substantial record of scholarly achievement achieveing the rank of associate professor and establishing a sustained and distinguished track record of scholarly achievement within their university and academic discipline earn promotion to full professor.

    Then a BJJ black belt can call themself a professor.

    That's in the US, of course, requirements very from country to country.

    Soooo what your saying is someone who refers to themselves as 'Professor' when they just got their BJJ Black Belt in March of 2010 is really just a piece of **** ****** who should do the who world a favor and off themselves at their next earliest convenience.

    Thanks for confirming my suspicions!!

    My coach gets called professor by some of his brown belts but he doesn't insist on it. I think whenever anyone insists on people addressing them with an honorific they sound like douche bags.

    If you refer to yourself as professor and aren't a tenured academic at a university, then you're a silly arse.

    The highest teaching rank in Savate is Professeur and above a certain BB rank in BJJ you are also called a Professor, but there the same convention as "sensei" is used (you don't refer to yourself as Professor, but others can call you Professor).

    While the commonwealth countries and several countries on mainland Europe have some narrow defenitions of the usage of professor, in the majority of the world Professor is just another word for teacher.
    Most of the time professor written without a capitol means an university teacher who has a PhD or MD, while Professor with a capitol just means teacher.

    Thing is 'sensei' doesn't mean anything in English. Professor has a very distinct meaning in English and to go around calling yourself professor when you aren't one is silly and possibly illegal in some jurisdictions.

    Are there any IBJJF rules against calling yourself 'Professor'?
