Frequently asked questions


i already purchased blue belt requirements 1.0 and loved it. what’s the difference between 1.0 and 2.0?

the original blue belt requirements was released in 2008, and set a new standard for martial arts media for its instructional clarity and design aesthetics. it is considered to be a classic, and some describe it as the single best instructional resource for beginners learning the art.

filmed in 4k, blue belt 2.0 contains the majority of the original curriculum, plus new segments, including headlock escapes, knee on belly attacks, back escapes, and additional takedown combinations. the verbal instruction in 2.0 is even more concise vs 1.0, which encourages repeat viewings, and a greater range of techniques are displayed.

blue belt 2.0 can be viewed as a stand alone instructional, and also functions as an expansion pack for 1.0 viewers.
