It’s belts and then the stripes are levels within the belt. The stripes are a combination of time served and accomplishment.

The belts are White, Blue, Purple, Brown, Black, Coral, Coral with white and then Red.

I’m currently a white belt with 2 stripes

The assistant instructor is a black belt and our main instructor is a black belt with 4 stripes. Rilion is Coral belt with 7 stripes I believe. Once you get to Black the stripes stay to Coral it’s not like he striped out at black belt and then earned 7 stripes at Coral.


The stripes are literally a piece of athletic tape they place on the different colored patch on your belt.

Very cool. Thanks for the education. It's amazing that a Gracie isn't at the highest level. Congratulations on your achievements so far. Keep at it as long as you're enjoying it.

He pretty much is, you have to be a black belt (regular and coral) for approx 48 years before you can become a red belt. 


Also one thing I failed to mention was the stripes reset when you change belts except for when you reach black, from that point forward they accumulate until solid red which indicates 9th degree and instead of saying stripe some say degree for black and beyond.

So I’m still working my way along but lately it’s been a slow go. I’ve increased my class load and yet I’ve still stalled out. I’m at this strange stage where I can’t let go of who I am and can’t become who I want to be so I’ve pretty much stopped learning. As soon as I get in trouble I revert back to being big and strong thus not actually practicing Jiu Jitsu and instead it looks like I’m in a street fight.


On the bright side I’m dropping the lbs so I should look good for my Hawaii trip in a few weeks but beyond that it’s frustrating.

Well I received my 3rd stripe a few weeks ago and thus am able to explore a little more of the class offerings. I took a no gi class Tuesday night and enjoyed it (no Wong nobody was naked but we all were wearing tights pm me later and I can send you a pic of me). Unfortunately it looks like my journey into Jiu Jitsu will have to likely be put on hold here shortly as we are preparing to move to a different state and I will be starting with a new company.

Working thru my last couple of classes and it’s been good; been getting smashed a lot by the higher belts and doing decent against equal competition.


Found a new gym close to my next house so I’ll check it out once I get settled but I imagine I won’t be able to attend much due to the predictable demands of my new position in the real world.

Sounds like most of us on the board could never be a coral belt since it takes 48 years to earn. That would put most of us in our graves.
