    Alright, I may get flak for this. I went to a gracie barra for a couple of years. It's been discussed here before.



    I think this chart, and gracie barras being numerous, plays a big part in it.

      Are Gracie Barra Academies utilizing this promotion scheme or is this a bare minimum? Because Gracie Barra students I've rolled with don't seem to be behind the BJJ curve.

        Both I think. They post this chart on the walls in GBs, but just as it is. There's nothing stating that these are minimums. However, if you search online, you'll find people calling these minimums. I think it sets some expectations about promotion times that are pretty gross, either way. 2x/wk = 5 & 2/3 years. It undoubtedly varies wildly from school to school.

          5-6 years at 2x/week would be tough to get a black belt in Judo, IMO and IME at least... A young, healthy person with no previous grappling experience or skill who only goes 2x a week isn't going to do very well in competition, which is a key to getting promoted more quickly.

            In any case, belts never do help much when someone decides they are going to do their best to put a hurting on you.

            But that in no way diminishes my Congratulations to the OP on getting the black belt in BJJ.

                I beg to differ.

                  Depends upon the school.

                    I stand corrected.

                      I think that's about right. I'm well behind that rate (to be expected as an intermittently dedicated increasingly fat middle aged hobbyist). It's 12 years in August for me, but I just got a 1st stripe on my brown.

                      Congrats OP.
