So whats with these BJJ belts?
The first official Brazilian jiu-jitsu system was created back in 1967. before that day. there were 3 belt colors white for students, light blue for instructors and dark blue for professors. After 1967 the belt system you know of today was set in place from everything i researched on the subject. as for kids bjj belts thats a whole different ball game. you have teh IBJJF belt system, and you have the gracie kids belt system then you have individual unaffiliated BJJ clubs doing their own thing.
