The Desert Force Featherweight Champion Abdul Kareem al Selwady recently got promoted to blue belt under BlackBelt Zaid Mirza. He certainly put the lads through their paces, it was a tough grading and celebrating with the traditional belt whipping with Team Mirza at the Desert Force Training Center.
In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, your blue belt is only the first belt you’ll receive after white. Yet in contrast to almost all other traditional martial arts in which you can progress in rank very rapidly, it takes an incredible amount of time and effort to obtain even your first BJJ belt promotion. Trust your insturctor, train hard and good things will come.
