    Guys, are there different types of BB in BJJ? I saw on a website, www.vacircaacademy.com, that they had one with the usual red material but with one white stripe at each end of the red material, one with just the red material and the last one just with white material. Can somebody explain?

    i have seen what you are talking about...some have just a red promotion bar, and some have a red promotion bar with a white stripe on each end, even if they have earned no stripes yet

    Lol.. you don't die anymore. You merely fade away , and can give advice through a spectral projection from time to time.

    The red part is to show instructor status, there are many blackbelts who do not teach. The white area is for dan stripes for the non instructors.

    You have to kill him and then eat his body. It's the only way to acquire his soul.

    Eventually you will have to fight your master. If you defeat him then he will become more powerful than you had ever imagined. At some point in time he will transubstantiate and give you the red sleeve.
