    Doing the math on hours spent training and how much to get promoted just like that is a mistake. Training a lot is good, yes. If you dedicate a year to intense training you will no doubt make huge improvements. However it is imortant to keep focused on where you are and what you need to work on at the moment. The time off the mat counts for something too, don`t leave your brain at the door. The sleep you get every night is invaluable too.

    (edit) why am I responding to a two and a half year old post made by a closed account?

    Where I go you get 4 stripes on your white belt before you get to blue.My guess is you probably got to train the whole year to reach blue belt.

    No. Can't think of a gym that would promote you past blue given the time frame.

    My impression is that most places track the number of class hours to get an idea of who might be ready to test. Stripes are different than belts in that regard, with some places just giving stripes do to time on the mat. I can't imagine a legitimate training group getting someone to Brown Belt in a year regardless of the amount of time spent on the mat. Kids in the Gracie family, who pretty much grew up on the mats, didn't make Brown Belt that fast. People who come to Jiu-Jitsu with significant grappling experience from Judo, Sambo, or Wrestling don't earn belts that fast either.

    Besides, training for 4 hours a day every day of the week for a year is likely to result in some injuries at some point that are going to curtail one's mat time.

    You guys are replying to a 6 year old thread lol. Interesting discussion regardless. A person who already has a solid wrestling or judo background who then trains a few hours a day in BJJ I could see getting their purple belt in a year. Brown belt? No way. Brown belt isn't just knowing techniques (blue) and or being able to fight from each position (purple). It's when you've learned to chain attacks and bait moves in each position.

    I heard that.... training 6 days a week 3, 4 hurs a day...

    You should totally sandbag when you get back, too. Keep your white belt the entire time.

    Then come back to some place that has an instructor who DID get his creds by ordering them by mail order and subvert his school. Nice!

    (I AM kidding, y'all. But, I had a buddy who was a brown belt in judo for 20 years who was like that. A total terror on the mat, just didn't want to go through the formal bs of the shodan demo, didn't care at all.)
