Quem sabe a origem das faixas coloridas no Jiu-Jitsu? E da faixa-preta?
O sistema original de graduação dos irmãos Gracie era baseado apenas em duas cores - a branca, para alunos, e a azul escura, para professores. As faixas não eram indicativas de capacitação técnica e sim de capacidade de ENSINO. Todos os alunos usavam a faixa BRANCA. Conforme iam seguindo no curso de professores, caso assim o desejassem, iriam trocando a faixa, mas isso só a partir de 1967.
Olhe a explicação completa interessantíssima (em inglês) dada pelo Pedro Valente.
