We know that about 60% of the time, an instructor surprises the student with their promotion to a new belt. But what we don’t know is if that’s actually the preferred method by Brazilian jiu-jitsu students!
How do you prefer to be promoted to a new belt? Do you like formal, scheduled belt ceremonies where the graduation is known in advance, or do you like it better when things are less formal and there’s more of a surprise involved?
