    If the tourney doesnt identify that it is a BJJ tourney...9 times out of 10 its not. Also a white band and a grey band are still beginners so does it actually matter. If its that large-scale of a deal then let him wear the grey belt.

    I ALWAYS default to white belt.....if you're better than the belt that you're wearing, it will be obvious. If you're not, it will be too....you probably want the former.

    I would recommend that he wears his jiu jitsu belt first. And then see what division wearing that belt will get him into. You don't want your excited son to get into a division beyond his experience and leave discouraged.

    FYI, this thread is 9 years old, so I'm sure the original question has long since been decided. If the original poster's son is still practicing BJJ he should be getting into the adult ranks about now.
