Heian Do Bujutsu Kyu Grade System

 

The grading system at Heian Do Bu Jutsu Ryu is based on a 10 colour belt rank (kyu) system. A student is assessed before any grading and if all criteria are met (found in the Terms & Conditions page) the student may be put forward for a grading.
The 1st basic grading to White belt is assessed after the first 12-14 weeks (20 hours minimum classes).
Note the more classes a student attends during the week the shorter the time until their next grading.

 

The following yellow, orange and green grades are generally 3 months apart to Blue belt (Rokukyu 6th colour) gradings then expand to 6 months to 3rd kyu Brown belt level. There is generally a one year gap between the 3rd, 2nd and 1st kyu brown belt grades but the allotted time can often be totally dependent on the students willingness and comprehensive ability to learn. Remember we are grading you on passing an exam - you must be competent in the art, have control and are able to look after yourself and your opponent and understand the theory behind the techniques. We do not grade anybody just because they have attended X number of classes - Our Instructor Board need to sign their name to each students ability. You wouldn't put your wellbeing in the hands of a doctor who has studied for 5 years but failed all his exams. This is the same. We will not grade incompetent students, we don't care how mean your mum is or how big your dad is. When you are ready - we will grade you.

 

The Japanese tradition of counting backwards to 1st kyu or Brown belt with 2 tabs is common with most oriental martial arts clubs, though the number of ranks may differ the allotted time to 1st dan black belt is essentially the same whether they are a 6 kyu (6 belts) or 10 kyu (10 belt) system. The initial syllabus can be vied HERE.

 

Like any student who spends more time studying and attending all classes they generally move on faster than the students who just do the bare minimum of effort. At Heian Do Bu Jutsu Ryu, spirit, effort and commitment are encouraged and rewarded as much as natural ability - we are not training soldiers - we are teaching Budoka - people who follow the way to enlightenment through the martial arts.

 

Martial arts is about growing the whole person, ensuring all the correct foundation and building blocks are in place to create a stable, well balanced practitioner.  We hope that no matter what grade the student reaches they will have knowledge and skills that can be applied to everyday life.
