Hi, I am new to Ju-Jitsu, the seniors anyway. I got to a white belt when I was younger. I have recently started again. But was wondering how the grading system works.

BJJA(GB)will most probably follow traditional 'juko-ryu' grading colours also used by UKJJA and WJJF, though grading syllabus varies throughout the BJJA(GB) member associations.

These are white - yellow - orange - green - blue - purple - brown - black - black 1st Dan (1 red stripe) - black 2nd dan (2 red stripes), etc, then 6th & 7th Dan red & white block, 8th & 9th Dan solid red.

Have a look on any of their associate members websites, typically to see the arrangement. "Its not the size of the dog in the fight, its the size of the fight in the dog"
