What is a coral belt?
Red / Black belt aka coral belt
The IBJJF requires a practitioner remain a black & red belt for a minimum of 7 years.
When a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt reaches the seventh degree, he or she is awarded an alternating red-and-black belt similar to the one earned at the sixth degree in Judo. This belt is commonly known as a coral belt. Coral belts are very experienced practitioners, most of whom have made a large impact on Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and are often addressed within the art by the title master.
Red / White belt aka coral belt
The IBJJF requires a practitioner remain a white & red belt for a minimum of 10 years.
The International Brazilian jiu-jitsu Federation in 2013 amended the graduation guidelines with respect to the transition between seventh degree and eighth degree black belt. The transition is specifically noted on page 6 of the IBJJF General System of Graduation, Section 1.3.4. In short, a practitioner who has achieved the rank of 8th degree black belt will wear a red and white belt, which is also commonly called a coral belt.
