Randy Couture and Neil Melanson  are introducing a new No-GI / Submission Grappling “Color Stripe” ranking system for our students (youth and adult) and Xtreme Couture fighters.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is not the end all be all.  Submission Grappling / Catch Wrestling is its own art form.
Practitioners don’t wear a gi and, more to the point, have no universal means to track their progress and be ranked by skill level.

The simple fact is no one has thought outside the “ Belt ” , until now!

Under Neil Melanson’s system and instruction you’ll be able to test out  and be ranked as a Submission Grappler / Catch Wrestler.

We have a ranking system in place for both adult and our growing youth program.

Our youth program also includes  reward patches at no cost to you.  These reward patches are given at levels obtained between a belt.  This keeps our youth students eager to progress to the next level.

If you have more questions about our program and stripe test and cost, please stop in and visit the gym, you’ll like what we’re doing!

    Sounds great, how do I get to the first belt level to represent here in Northern Virginia outside DC? It would be nice to open a gym here. Thanks!!!

  3. Now, why didn’t I think of that? Great idea and could be used for not only grappling but mma, as well. At American Top Team, we use the colored shirt system for the UFC and Grappling “ranks”. I do like your stripe rank system, though.

    By the way, Randy you are a true inspiration to me. I am 48 and one of the things that motivates me to continue to train is the fact that you still do it and only continue to improve. So, I have no excuses, right?
