White Belt – 0 Months.  This curriculum revolves around the LCCT foundation Jiu Jitsu program. We firmly believe the techniques taught, and the format in which they are taught, are imperative to developing a sound fundamental Jiu Jitsu game. This foundation will provide a solid base for the rest of your game in which additional techniques will be placed as you journey through the ranks toward black belt and beyond!  Stripes are awarded after a minimum of 20 classes.  4 stripes are required before testing for blue belt.

*** LCCT Association Guidelines require all students to complete at least 2 private lessons with the academy coach prior to being recommended for promotion.  This practice ensures quality and readiness of the student while at the same time ensuring their rank test money is not wasted.
