As far as I know, it's legal at all belt levels for adults.

Um...what do you want to do? What kind of grab are we talking about? Gi, no-gi, self-defense, MMA? Did he stand up, or are we looking at when he just put a knee up? If he stood up, did he open your guard or are you hanging?

comment How to improve speed, strength and condition for Kyokushin karate?
"Weight training makes you powerful but slow." This is not true for many forms of weight training.

comment Is 16 too late of an age to start hapkido or judo?
@MontyWild Teenagers, particularly teenage males, are better suited than just about any other population to adapt and thrive in response to physical stress of this sort. When someone who is 40 with kyphosis and degenerated joints and so inflexible they can't touch their toes tries to just dive into judo or hard-sparring karate the answer is often injury, not adaptation.

I agree! Except about conditioning. Lots of people--most people--need remedial physical preparation before engaging in good hard training. Basic strength and mobility work can provide that. But that doesn't mean those people should wait, it means that martial arts schools should provide an on-ramp physical preparation program.
