Should A Blue Belt Be Teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu? Absolutely!

I’ve run into quite a few jiu-jitsu students who seem to think that only a black belt is qualified to teach a BJJ class. Why they believe this? I don’t know. Perhaps for the same reason that some people think only a PhD is qualified to teach her subject material.

But the fact of the matter is a blue belt knows numerous chokes, numerous passes, numerous submissions, and numerous escapes from those submissions. A blue belt can therefore teach a brand new student quite a bit.

When I was a new white belt, I did the majority of my training under a blue belt — and I learned a lot!

There’s no reason other new white belts can’t do the same.

Take it from Mr. Jiu-Jitsu: don’t underestimate blue belt instructors.
