BJJ White Belt:

White Belt:
This is the belt of paying your dues. This is the belt where you will spend most of your time on your back. You usually end up doing most of the tapping as well. Your ability to grapple successfully will depend largely on three things: - Your previous martial arts experience, (a grappling background helps a lot) - Your current fitness level, (a higher level of fitness help tremendously) - Your ability to learn visually (visual learners adapt and absorb information more quickly Students who come from a wrestling background seem to adapt very well to the slight change in grappling methods. Students who come from an athletic background also seem to adapt quite well. Those who come from a striking background sometimes have a difficult time adapting. Many have become so accustomed to visually grabbing onto the vertical and horizontal lines of the walls, doorways and ropes to stabilize their equilibrium that they feel very uncomfortable with the diagonal world of grappling. They quickly learn that the ground has not been their friend, and, that they must take some time to acquaint themselves with this new perspective. The most frustrating part about being a white belt (especially if you have no experience on the ground) is the fact that most of the advanced students will make you tap, or at least positionally dominate you. (I remember feeling frustrated as a white belt.) This frustration usually leads to white belts asking questions like, “How do I get on top of these guys? How do I escape the side or full mount? How do I tap out the blue and purple belts?” Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do right now to immediately change the tables in your favor. Get used to the blue and purple belts tapping you out. Get used to having them positionally dominating you. Consider tapping as a “form of learning”, a way of “paying your dues.” I remember when I was a white belt. I remember feeling like a rag doll in the hands of the blue and purple belts. I wish there would have been something I could have done to prevent from feeling like that, but there wasn’t. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is just one of those “time in service” things. You simply have to put your time in. There are no short cuts! The only encouragement that I can give to you is this, “Keep training! Your day is coming. The day will come when you will no longer be a white belt. The day is coming when you will be able to escape from any position with finesse and ease. Then, it will be your turn to watch the frustration of the new white belts that enter your school. Then, it will be your turn to encourage them as I have encouraged you!” White belts are expected to rely on speed, power, strength and explosiveness. For that is all they know. However, once a person dons the “blue belt”, the world of Jiu Jitsu suddenly changes.

Even if you feel pretty crappy, you need to look like you don't. Even if you're scared, you need to look like you're not. If you look intimidated, your opponent will walk all over you without even thinking twice.

Not a berimbolo fan?

Not a berimbolo fan? Xande, MG, Queixinho teach you how to shut it down

The double guard pull and the berimbolo are here to stay.
Every time this two techniques come into the spotlight, the debate ensues.
The surfacing of the match between Mikey Musumeci and João Miyao was the latest occasion when the Jiu-Jitsu community got divided between haters and lovers.
Following our mission to help you to improve your Jiu-Jitsu knowledge, GRACIEMAG went after a few videos where big names teach their way of shutting down the berimbolo.
Here’s seven-time black belt world champion Xande Ribeiro.
