LINEAGE

Our Lineage Is Your Lineage

Lineage refers to who awarded a practitioner, their Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) Black Belt, and also shows how that belt can be traced back to the Gracie family, the founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Lineage is a traditional concept in martial arts that illustrates loyalty to your teacher. In BJJ, it is a way to ensure that a person’s Black Belt is authentic.

A genuine Black Belt is considered a ‘Professor’ of the art and is deemed to have enough knowledge and skill to recognize and promote students when they are ready. Authentic lineage ensures the quality of these BJJ professors.
