THOUGHTS:  Responsibility of higher ranks to bring up lower ranks

It’s the responsibility of the purple belt to help the blue become purple, the responsibility of the blue to help the white to blue, and the responsibility of the white belt to tell their friends about the school, so we will have more students to train with.  This system is the basis of our culture and is very important.  We can show you the techniques but you will really teach each other BJJ.  The more advanced and diverse students we have the more people that can challenge you to be your best.
