Unlike the traditional JuJitsu, in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu you'll advance very slowly.
The adult belt system for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is as follows:
Black (1st dan)
The time taken to get a blue belt in BJJ can be as long as 3 years!
The reason is BJJ include some very advanced techniques design only for real fights.
The major techniques that you need to learn to advance to the Blue belt are:
01_)Basic Inside Forearm Block
04_)Reverse Twist Punch
05_)High/Low Parry On The Move
09_)Hip Throw With Strike
10_)Recumbent Ankle Throw
12_)One Step Front Snap Kick
13_)Two Hold Downs
As you see these are the very same techniques in the traditional JJ. But in the BJJ, you will have to work on more applicable techniques in street fights too.
So in BJJ other than performing the technique Perfectly in the club, you need to be able to perform it PERFECTLY in a real street fight too.
tha'ts why it itakes much longer than traditional JuJitsu Source(s): I'm a professional Kick Boxer with two national heavyweight medals.
Ye Kick Boxing is my major but I've done some Judo, BJJ, Wrestling and Karate too.
the only way to advance is to win in competitions and to dominate all the other white belts at your gym. depending on your natural ability it could take years.

I don't want to get into an argument with 'The One' here, but no BJJ class I've ever seen has required a STRIKE to obtain blue belt level.
Our curriculum is a list of 60 techniques you must know and be able to perform on demand, and you must then also be able to beat the white belts in your school and in competition against other schools.
ie: You prove you aren't a white belt, then you get your blue.
