How long (on average) did it take each of you to move from white to blue belt?
About 1.5 years since I started grappling, about 1 year after I started BJJ using a gi.
7 and 1/2 months... i had about 8 mths of JJJ before that though, and good competition results
2 years. my school held belt promotions once a year in conjunction with an in house tourney. I missed the first promo and had to wait a another year to get promoted. we had some white belts that were technically high blues cause they never would go to the promos ( the promo event costs $100 per student)
7 months. 2 of those months were 2 a days/6 days a week preparing for the pan ams, which i went 2-1 in.
About a year, however I had trained no-gi submission grappling for a couple years informally before beginning formal BJJ classes. 3 1/2 years after that for purple.
You're all superstars.
2 years in, white belt.
Almost all gi, all the time.
I actually only started posting so much recently to get a belt with some color.
Just over 2 years.
8 months no prior training
I suspect I'll get my blue belt after around.. 4 years. Pity belt.
Around two years I think...GOD that was a long time ago though...
I have no idea when the hell I'll ever get my purple.
Close to 4 years.
took me the standard 2 years for blue, including a few months off when my son was born.
About 2 years. I only was able to train about twice a week at the time, but I had a solid wrestling base so I suppose that canceled it out. Cause it's hard to advance training so infrequently. But all in all, about 2 years.
Almost a year and a half.
about 11 months training 3-4 times a week.
yesss. inconsistency kills a lot!
9 months of active training
(Year and 3 months total but i took 6 months off for my knee)
Haha i know the feeling. You have to enjoy getting your blue belt because you're going to have it for years...
