    Default How long does it take to get BJJ Black Belt

    Serious question i know it takes on avg a person who goes 2-3 times a week 10+yrs, but lets say you go 5 days a week and actually keep what the teacher teaches you down.

    So how long do you think it will take after all that is said and done.

    this needs to go in grappling, but it depends on the instructor, the school, and most importantly the student. 5 days a week, 5 hours a day, with a good high level instructor, depending on how you do in competition, i'd say minimum 6 years.

    BJ Penn

    Did it in three because he trained every single day, privately, with the Gracie family and competed his ass off, not to mention he is naturally gifted to a freakish extent with flexibility and strength. I doubt anyone, will every be ale to do that again for a very very long time.

    Great grapplers by who's measure? have they won any comps? placed top 5? beat anyone who is belted?

    Not trying to be a dick, but your post has nothing to do with the topic. I've personally seen lost of guys who are not belted and watch youtube videos and rastle' with their buddies, but when they come into the gym against guys who are properly trained they get destroyed %100 of the time.

    Depends on the instructor and your own ability to pick BJJ up. There is no universal answer. However, there is an alternative.

    thier first competition was put on by roli delgados school, you know who im talkin about? the ultimate fighter that lost to junie. two of these guys had to grapple each other for first and second place. theyve came and tapped out one of my black belt instructors too. i too have seen people that say they know thier shit but these guys know thier shit. and i watched some tips from youtube that really work. its all in the person and the persons head. they are great by my measure but who am i right? they might suck but they have no training from anybody. all what they do is on thier own. some people are born to fight and others work real hard to become those people.

    There are people that have reached black belt level in 3-4 years, which is AMAZING. Some people stay at purple belt for over 3 years, so I guess it all depends.
