Kids Belt Tests

For your child to advance to their next belt here at Easton BJJ – Arvada, they must first go through 2 different testing procedures. These testing procedures are designed to help them build self-confidence, technique proficiency, and leadership skills that they will use throughout their life. 

The Test

1) One-on-One Test – This test is a private session (parents are encouraged to watch) with an instructor, to go over a set list of techniques for the belt the student is testing for. Students will also be required to demonstrate some of the techniques at prior testing levels. Students will need to know the names and demonstrate all techniques correctly to pass this test. If the student does not pass, they only need to retest for the techniques that they did not pass, not all of them. This can be common, so don’t get discouraged. The instructor will go over the proper technique so the student can practice. We are here to help one another, learn, and grow. Students can start testing once they reach their fifth stripe on their belt. Now for the second test…

2) Bully Battle! – For this test, the student gets to pick an instructor of their choice, and uses the techniques that they’ve learned on display. The student will have to battle for 2 minutes. During this time they will show of the full range of their skills, using escapes, sweeps, guard passes, and submissions. And yes, the family is always welcomed to take pictures and film the whole event! After the Bully Battle, the student is then presented with the belt that they have earned!

Please schedule both of the tests with an instructor, and have the testing sheets required with you when ready to test. 

As always feel free to ask any questions, we’re always here to help.
