The Six Drills
The Blue Belt Stripe 4 (BBS4) Official Test consists of six drills: three Technical Drills and three full-resistance Sparring Drills. On this DVD, Ryron and Rener Gracie discuss the parameters of each drill as well as demonstrate all 181 techniques in the exact order that will be expected of you. The brothers also explain the grading criteria that will be used to grade your performance.
The Evaluation Options
When confident in your ability to perform all six drills, you can test for Stripe 4 promotion via Live Evaluation or via the Video Evaluation Process. For more information on these testing methods, and to download the official list of techniques, please visit the online 'Testing Center' at GracieUniversity.com. When you pass the test, Gracie University Headquarters will send you your stripe and an official promotion certificate in the mail. Once you earn all four stripes on your blue belt, you qualify to test for purple at any Level 4 Certified Training Center under the watchful eye of a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Instructor.
