Three Criteria for Stripes

Have you been wondering how the stripe promotions work for your son or daughter?  Gracie Barra follows the guidelines outlined by the governing body of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu; the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation.  In order for your child to receive their stripe at the end of class, all of the following must be met:

1) Time: Minimum of 30 days

When our instructors check the attendance cards the first criteria we check is time since the last promotion.  Has it been at least 30 days since his or hers last promotion?  If you are unsure of when your son or daughter’s last promotion was look at their attendance card.  If it has been 30 days or more, the instructor will move to the 2nd criteria.

Tip: Look for the red dots on your son or daughter’s attendance card.  The red dot with a stripe through it is the date of their last promotion.  The red dot without a stripe is the earliest date for their next promotion.

2) Attendance: Minimum of 8 classes 

After it has been at least 30 days the next criteria required is attendance.  Has the student attended at least 8 classes over the last 30 days?  If it has been 30 days since their last promotion and they have attended at least 8 classes over this time frame, the instructor will move to the 3rd criteria.

Tip: Look for the black dots on your son or daughter’s attendance card.  The black dots are the days they have attended class.

3) Instructor’s Approval

If your son or daughter has attended at least 8 classes over the last 30 days, the final criteria is the approval of the instructor.  Does he or she posses the required skills to receive their promotion?  Furthermore, is the student behaving well in class, at home, and at school?  We encourage parents to keep an open communication with our instructors on the behavior of their child.  It is important to us that our students are improving themselves on and off the mat.

Tip: If your son or daughter did not receive their promotion kindly ask the instructor why.  More often than not, a simple mistake has been made such as miscounting the classes attended.
