    Oxford Study on BJJ Belt Promotions/Grading Rituals

    Hello folks,

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this, so if it's not I'm sure you'll let me know but since the grappling forum clearly says it is for TECHNIQUE DISCUSSION ONLY I guessed here is the better shot.

    I used to lurk around Bullshido a good few years back but been quite a while since I was here.

    Anyway, I'm looking for participants to complete a survey I designed on belt promotions/gradings in BJJ. The research is going to be part of a large international research project that is running in my department (Institute of Cognitive & Evolutionary Anthropology) but I'm also planning to share interesting results with the wider BJJ community via www.bjjsurveys.com. I'm using aesopian's gi survey as the kind of model about how to share results.

    To complete the survey you just need to go to www.bjjsurveys.com and follow the links. The survey takes about 20 mins to complete and all entries will be entered into a draw to win 20 (about $30) and a copy of Stephan Kesting's newest 'How to Defeat Bigger, Stronger Opponents' DVD (kindly donated by aesopian!).

    My optimistic hope is that the website can grow beyond my study and be used as a hub for gathering interesting academic research or general surveys focusing on BJJ. Time will tell if there is enough interest but so far the response has been great. Though if anyone is feeling altruistic enough to post the link to facebook/relevant group its always appreciated.

    If anyone has any questions I'm happy to answer, although bear in mind I can't quite talk about any specific hypothesis we are testing until after all responses are collected.

    Appreciate anyone who takes the time to fill out the survey and if you want to contact me directly, aside from posting here in thread, my contact details are also on the survey site.

    Cheers,
    Chris
