Grading Syllabus

The Nippon Syllabus is unique to our club.

Although it shows similarities with many other grading syllabi, it was developed over the last 20 years to ensure a sound learning experience and preparation for competitions and social practice. It is also updated regularly when new information comes to the fore, or when competition rules change.

The junior kyu syllabus will be published here. The senior kyu syllabus (blue belt) is available upon request.
