I think you should have started another thread, you just hi-jacked his. He asked a question whats wrong with giving an answer without feelings being involved.

I feel we are some what family, members in the MAs, I'll answer your questions after we are through with this discussion.

Hope this doesn't offend, it wasn't my intention.

I am an active instructor and currently a new Brown Belt in BJJ. BJJ rank is difficult to equate to typical kyu/gup ranks.

Hello neko456:

If that is the case (I hijacked) then I genuinely and earnestly apologize.

I loved his question(s) simply wanted to add a few more levels of detail. The people who do it daily vs. a couple times a month. Important difference IMV-fwiw...

It's not that difficult to equate BJJ ranks to standard gup/kyu ranks, IMHO. For example, I'd put a typical BJJ brown belt as somewhere between 2nd and 3rd dan.

Really depends on where you go though, because gradings in BJJ are relative to the skill of the class and instructor. However, I tend to agree, a purple belt in BJJ is usually already a competent instructor.
