What Belt are you?

What belt are you?

Me: I am a brown belt.

Oh I have a nephew that is a black belt.

If you have been training Jiu Jitsu for long enough to get your purple belt you indubitably have had this conversation with someone.  Everyone wants to compare your Jiu Jitsu belt to someone they knows Tung Se Do belt, Tae Kwon Do belt, ect..  The Jiu Jitsu belt promotion system is a tough one to grasp because there are no true set ways to promote.  Typically you are looking at two years per belt but that is definitely a raw timetable with a lot of variables to consider.  I though Flavio Almeda had some good points in this video, that we (Jesus, Andrew, and I) consider during promotions.
