Judo Saskatchewan Grading Committee

Judo uses a progression system to promote participants who have attained specific skill and knowledge proficiencies. This progression is tracked using different colours of belts. The progression system is divided in two: Kyu Grades (White to Brown) and Dan Ranks (Black).
 
The Kyu grades are defined in the Mudansha (Kyu) grade syllabus and are administered by clubs across the country.  These levels are designed to progressively learn judo techniques and culture. 
 
Dan grades include 10 degrees starting from the black belt (Shodan). These degrees were created in order to perfect the techniques and to develop the culture of judo.  Dan grades are defined in the Yudansha (Dan) grade syllabus and are administered by Judo Canada Grading Committee and Provincial /Territorial Grading Committees. 
  • Yudansha (Dan) grade syllabus (January 1st, 2021)
  • Judo Canada Grading Resources


    Fans & spectators showed up to observe the Saskatchewan Black Belt Grading process. With a record number of candidates, the gradings were spread over 2 days and 2 cities.
