Traditional Brazilian jiu jitsu features five belt ranks. Newbies start as white belts and train with dedication for years, hoping to one day master their art and achieve the level of black belt.
On Sunday, May 20th, at its CHAMPIONS OF TOMORROW! event at Club Nokia at L.A. LIVE, the University of MMA will introduce an all new gold belt. This unique trophy will be awarded to the winners of the debuting combat jiu jitsu (CJJ) bouts.
