Nick's Blue Belt Promotion


Congratulations to Nick. He earned his blue belt yesterday from our coach JB.

Nick blue belt

A lot of people think that they don't deserve their blue belt after they got it. This happens at all belt levels, but a lot more at blue then the others.

When you start out as a fresh white belt, a blue belt can look like a master of BJJ. Often this image is stuck in your brain when you get better and progress through the white belt ranks.

Don't measure yourself against this image. You don't have to be able to tap all the blue belts to become a blue belt. And it's ok if you still tap to white belts every so often.

Earning a blue belt at the BJJ Lab is not about who you can tap and who you tap to. It's all about how well you know the positions and techniques.
