this is old news.

have you seen their woman's sd curriculum?

It is amazing, deep, completely different than the combatives and the master cycle, yet still rooted in gjj.

are any belts necessary?

it simply recognizes the accomplishment. they could have chosen a certificate, but this is more 'fun'.

I am an Old School Pink Belt myself... for real.

I actually earned a "Pink Belt" in Judo from Jim Neto at the Santa Monica YMCA when I was 9! LOL. It wasn't even a real belt, but a piece of pink canvas strapping they gave to kids before Yellow Belt. I was thrilled to earn that "belt". lol.

this is not a belt added to the jiu jitsu system. it is an acknowledgment of achievement in a program. it being a program separate from jiu jitsu does not mean jiu jitsu is being diluted.

The one positive is, if you get the pink belt, you no longer have to tip. For seminars, privates,etc...

I don't see the problem here. When BJJ was on the rise in the us the bitch was TMA giving black belts too quick and josh getting black belts.

This is a program designed to help women learn self defense and get an intro into bjj.

They aren't giving black belts heck they aren't even using real bjj belt colors. Instead of diluting bjj they chose a totally other ranking color to distinguish the accomplishment. Idk what else the could have done to differentiate it.

I have no problem with this. Phone Post 3.0

This. People are jumping to conclusions instead of investigating. It is a belt simply for the program, getting the belt has jack shit to do with their jiu-jitsu rank (which they do separate). It is something to help give confidence and a sense of accomplishment to the women involved in the program and they are in no way being deluded to believing it is a offical jiu-jitsu rank. So what are people bitching and moaning about?

what would you think if I told you I know a guy who wrestles No-Gi a lot, goes by the SN 'Check Your Oil' - wrestling jargon for securing a grip on the human anatomy by sticking your finger in a dude's butt, and hates on Women's Self-Defense programs?

Only legit if pink belts are awarded strictly from the online curriculum IMHO, no face to face training which is diluting our art.
