The White Belt Who Never Quit

I once read a statistic on the number of people who receive a rank promotion in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Out of 100 white belts, one will receive their blue belt.  Out of 1,000 white belts, one will receive a black belt.

One of the biggest pitfalls I notice in my academy is when students compare themselves to each other. It’s important to understand that everyone is on their own journey.

Whether you’re trying to compete at a high level, trying to lose weight, or learn self-defense techniques, it will be different for everyone!

Some students have more talent or ability than others. Others have the availability to put more time into training. There are so many different variables when it comes to your success in martial arts.

For many people it could take well over 15 to earn a black belt. A rare few may earn it in 6 to 10 years.

For those who do make it to the higher belt levels they are able to use the things they’ve learned and apply it to become successful in any part of life.

In many cases, the student with the least amount of talent may catch up or surpass the student with superior talent or ability. Personally, that’s one of the most impressive things to me about jiu-jitsu.

The secret is to never give up, ask the right questions, learn from your mistakes and remember that the only thing you can control is your attitude.

Your attitude controls your perception of the world and ultimately will control your destiny.

After all, the saying goes “a black belt is just a white belt who never quit.”­
