    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Are 1st Degree BJJ Black Belts commonly allowed to hand out black belts?

    I know in Judo, you can only promote up to one rank below you. But I know some people who've recently been promoted to 1st degree BJJ Black Belt by other 1st degree Black Belts.

    Is this legit??

    FOURTH CHAPTER

    Instructors allowed to give grades

    The membership form of an athlete graded in the following belts: grey, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple and brown must be signed by a black belt instructor who is certified by the IBJJF (with the exception of a few countries – fifth chapter)

    The membership form of an athlete graded black belt must be signed by a black belt instructor no lower than 2nd degree who is certified by the IBJJF.

    Yes. In GB if the brown in question has met the usual time requirement or 18 months (not a hard rule but a guideline) then the 1st BB can ask if he can promote him through the GB HQ if they agree then the brown can be promoted to 1st by a 1st. I've seen this happen about 3 times now.

    CAVEAT: This is done when there isn't a higher belt in the area.

    This is true but not set in stone.

    This goes for NZ so applicable, but my BJJ coach needs to get his 4th dan before he can hand out over here. He just got back from brazil (like literally yesterday) for getting it.

    Is this the same 1st dan who calls himself "Professor" cowboy?

    Ya, same guy. He got promoted by a 1st degree BB in March and then the 'Professor' IMMEDIATELY handed out like 3 or 4 BBs to his students right away.

    Just seems fishy to me.

    I know the IBJJF wants to be in charge of all jiujitsu and all, and I see a lot of schools adopting their rules, but it doesn't automatically follow that everyone uses or will use ibjjf rules.

    Also, wtf, grey belt?
