The World Jujitsu Federation WJJF belt order runs follows the traditional white to black route, but with the unusual addition of the red belt right at the beginning. This allows everyone on the mat to see at a glance those beginners who need space and help with their techniques, as well as ensuring other belts take it easier with them on sparring and throws.
All WJJF belts at the kyu level (beneath black belt) are around 3-4 months in duration to complete, with the exception of the brown belt which is around 6-12 months in preparation for the black belt grading.
There is a blue and white belt before the blue belt, and a brown and white belt before the brown, as the syllabus has developed to the point where it became important to split some of the belts into easier digestible sections.
