CT BJJ: New Blue Belts

Yesterday at Crossroads BJJ we promoted 3 Jiu-Jitsu students to the rank of Blue Belt. The rank of blue belt is a significant achievement in BJJ, as it shows from a technical stand point you know what to do in each of the five positions on the Mat. The rank of blue belt also shows you have begun to develop the intangible qualities that make great Jiu-Jitsu players, timing, balance, feel, and composure. As a Blue Belt you will continue adding techniques to your arsenal, choosing moves that work well for you and removing the techniques that do not from your game. You will also begin to understand techniques more deeply, learning when to use each Jiu-Jitsu technique, and  learn more positional refinements. The Blue Belt begins you creating your own personal style.

Congratulations! Keep up the hard work!
