As a general rule, 4 years old and up is a good age for kids to start training. Adults of any age can benefit from Jiu Jitsu.

  • Do you have to be an already established athlete to train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

  • How long does it take to earn a black belt?

The average time is 10-15 years.  

" It's not who's good; it's who's left. It's the hours on the mat. If you put in that time, natural athlete or not, you'll be a black belt. You're going to be somewhere in ten years, why not be a black belt? You just can't quit.
