    can a bjj instructor self promote theirselves???

    www.brausasystems.com

    "December of 2000 I self promoted myself to Black belt in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and competed against Black belt Mundial 3rd place winner David Meyers to a draw."

    There are no international laws on whether or not a person can promote themselves within a martial arts system. Anyone at anytime with no experience can decide to start their own martial arts system and promote themselves to 10th dan if they want to. Now given they wont be recognized by credible organizations but that doesnt seem to stop most people.

        Well, at least he's honest that he promoted himself to black belt. If he competes in this division in BJJ and can win consistantly I wouldn't see anything wrong with it, as long as his belts through brown were legitimate.

          they shouldn't do...

                I think it kinda depends on his peers. If other black belts of the system think he's the real deal and deserves a certain rank, then whos to say its wrong?

                  I don't understand why he couldn't just be promoted to black belt through a cerfitfied BJJ school. His credibility would never have been an issue if he took the conventional route.
