Does your BJJ belt lineage really matter if you plan to teach?
Of course this is my opinion, but assuming that your belt lineage is legitimate. I really don’t think it matters as many people think.
As a young coach who was a brown belt. I had an obscure Brazilian Jiu-jitsu lineage for most. But I was still able to be successful in competitions and as a coach.
I’ve grown a gym that’s nearly 10000 sq ft and has hundreds of people training.
I accomplished this not with my really cool belt lineage. But because I was very much invested in the success of my students and my drive to help them.
Now, all that said, I think lineage can be important in a few cases. But if you’re someone who is looking to become a Brazilian Jiujitsu coach or instructor.
I think your belt lineage is less important when compared to who you are as a person and how you teach your students.
