Senior Grades (BJA)

 

There are six senior (learner) grades, called "KYU" and ten senior (teacher) grades, called "DAN".

 

The Kyu Grade system is a distinctive feature of judo with promotion to different coloured belts based on technical ability, knowledge and understanding as well as supplementary knowledge of Japanese terminology.

 

Although there is no contest requirement in the Kyu Grade system there is a progressively structured randori (free practice) element based on open skills.

 

The Dan Grades system is a distinctive feature of judo with promotion to different ranks based on a variety of different pathways and achievements.

 

Obtaining a Dan Grade is one of the highest qualifications available to individuals involved in the sport of judo
