When can you start teaching Jiu Jitsu?
Some children start as young as three or four-years-old. The problem with starting your child too young is that they can develop an aversion for the sport if they’re not ready. Most BJJ professionals suggest starting your child around the age of six or when they are in first grade.
Can I learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at home?
BJJ requires you to become adept at using many highly specialised movements that you hardly ever use in the rest of your life. Fortunately there are BJJ solo drills to help fill the void. Being able to drill at least some of these movements yourself at home or at the dojo before class will definitely help you.

Jiu Jitsu is a true hybrid of techniques and incorporates grips, strangles and joint locks. It also teaches you how to control your centre of gravity against that of any attacker. So, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is good for self defence but it’s not designed exclusively for self defence.

How long does it take to get a black belt in BJJ?

Can a BJJ blue belt teach?
I’ve run into quite a few jiu-jitsu students who seem to think that only a black belt is qualified to teach a BJJ class. A blue belt can therefore teach a brand new student quite a bit. When I was a new white belt, I did the majority of my training under a blue belt — and I learned a lot!
Is it hard to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
