What a white belt should know

February 8, 2017

As a beginner in Jiu-Jitsu (whitebelt with no stripes) I wonder what it takes to get to that blue belt as I am sure many white belts wonder the same thing.  White belt is the first belt within Brazilian jiu-jitsu. The rank is held by any practitioner new to the art and has no prerequisite. Some instructors and other high-level practitioners think that a white belt's training should emphasize escapes and defensive positioning since a white belt will often fight from inferior positions, especially when training with more experienced practitioners.  Most academies will additionally require that a white belt level practitioner works to obtain a well-rounded skills set, with a knowledge of basic offensive moves, such as common submissions and guard passes.  Here are a few BJJ Mind Maps to help you better visualize the basics a white belt should know before  being promoted.  Below are examples of things you should know for each white belt stripe.  I personally find the visualizations helpful.
