    Congrats to the new blues, it will be a long time till I get mine (haven't even started competing yet!)
    What's the green belt for? Didn't think that was an adult grade in BJJ? I only wore mine from Ju Jitsu as no one had a white in my size anywhere.

    ATT has a green belt adult grade between white and blue. As far as I know, it has no official meaning outside of ATT, unlike blue, purple, and so on, which do.

    I believe that similar "between white and blue" grades are not uncommon elsewhere, given the amount of time it takes to get to blue.

    So they would compete as white belts at tournaments? I take it that's what they would wear outside the school unless they were in an ATT competition...?
    I'm quite curious about this, not seen anything like it before. We don't even use any stripes that often. (I'm BTT)

    As a green belt I competed in the blue belt division at NAGA ... even though I was technically still a white belt. And I wore my green belt.

    I could've competed at white if I wanted ... but I chose to go up to blue.

    Hey Rhea,

    From my undestanding, the green belt for adults was something the Popovitch school was using to give new guys incentive to stay training, think of it as a more defined stripes. When competiting, we all do as white.

    I love the competitive comradery in BJJ like this.

    At our last promotion for a bunch of people to blue belts, one of the quotes was - "well at least that's a little closer to the brown belt you have on your myspace page". Which of course spurred on a little more spirited rounds.

    Congrats Anthony, Jeff, Francisco on a hard earned accomplishment that really means something in the martial arts.

    Like someone else said I know popovitch gives a green belt, and the lovato's actually give out orange and green belts before blue. I think (as someone else said) it's to keep people motivated and feeling like they're progressing. Usually said orange and green belts compete at white.
