Traditionally, we host graduation on the first week of December.
It is usually held during a normal class which falls on Thursday as it is a Gi class.
We will also have our X-mas party at Stu house where we will make some wood fire pizza and eat about 10 kilos of oysters. Beer and Kava will also be provided.
In our club, graduation is very simple.
The graduates demonstrate a couple of techniques.
It is not a test but more an opportunity to show off their skills and put them on the front stage so to speak.
Then we have open mats for sparring for about 45 minutes.
Of course, we complete the ceremony with giving belts and stripes.
Oh, I forgot the pizzas, garlic bread and chips ordered from Domino pizzas and the beers.
Overall, good fun at the club.

As we are getting closer to graduation, students that are not getting promoted to the next belt will likely to receive stripes instead. If you do not have a black tab on your belt, we cannot give you stripes. Why do we have stripes? The Gracies decided to have a stripes system in order to be different from Judo.

You can move to the next belt even if you do not have any stripes. What is the red tab for? It is for the instructors. A blue
I will teach you a black belt magic trick in Jiu Jitsu. If you want a student to disappear: give him a blue belt. It is recurring event in the life of an instructor and a club. If you think the drop out of white belts is bad enough, the ratio of drop out of the blue belts is worst. I am not sure if I agree with statistics on this picture. But the issue is not really about arguing about the percentages of drop out but more on discussing the reasons for such drop out and what we can do to prevent it. Reasons for the drop out: It takes a long time to achieve a blue belt. It average between 1-3 years. After 1-3 years of training, people loose interest and wants to start a new sport or hobby. The goal of the student was to achieve the blue belt and not the black belt. Personal situations changes over the years. Lot of people that start training are young single males with disposable income. Lot of them are at university level or are single. Add a few more years and they
