Jitz Question

Okay, so My friend is a Black Belt in Tae Kwan Do and he says that since he's a blackbelt he can start training people and giving them belts. First I want to know if thats true, and next if the same is true for BJJ because my trainer is a 2nd degree BB in it and I've never really thought of actually trying to get belts from him :\ Thanks

I'm pretty sure that is true. It's pretty hard to become a black belt in BJJ, so I'm pretty sure all black belts can teach students and give out belts.

Doesn't the credibility of his belt come from who gave him the belt though?

Awesome

My trainer is my brother in law too so I can train with him for free. My friend the TKD belt is getting his own dojo in a year or two and we're going to expand it to be a BJJ/TKD/MMA Gym. My brother in law is also a silver glove boxer so we'll probably incorperate that and Hapkido too.

EDIT: He got his BJJ belt from his father (3rd degree BB) and he trained with Dan Severn

Whoa whoa whoa.

Disclaimer: I'm not trying to start a fight.

Let me get this straight. You brother in law, is a 2nd degree black belt. in Brazilian Jujitsu. And he got his Black Belt, from his Dad. Who is a 3rd Degree blackbelt, in BJJ?

I would like to confirm that a blackbelt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can give out ranks. The fact is, though, in the BJJ world it matters alot more who gave you your belt. That's why it's important to check the lineage of the belt and make sure that you know what you're saying when you claim your instructor.

I'm not sure about TKD, but I will say that there are alot of TKD blackbelts that I train with that make me think that a blackbelt in the style is about on the level of a bluebelt in BJJ. I'm sure that TKD guys will disagree with me, but they do give out blackbelts way to young, as do many martial arts instructors.

Belts dont mean alot. For along time I didnt give karate any respect at all because I totally destroyed a "black belt" afew years back. At the time the only thing ive trained in was boxing.
