BJJ Belt Promotion Calculator

This belt time calculator is purely based on statistical data. When calculating the time to your next BJJ belt promotion and the time to higher belt promotions (Black, Coral and Red), it treats you as the statistically average BJJ practitioner.

The calculation can’t account for intensity, injuries, competition etc. and individual promotion times will vary greatly around the mean calculated by the calculator below.

We know that this tool is highly inaccurate for any individual person and it is only supposed to give a rough reference. Check below for calculation and statistics insights.
