Grading

Judo grades give an indication of the level of the Judoka (judo player). From 1st Kai to 10th Dan, a judoka’s belt should reflect their knowledge and ability. It is important to remember that judo is a pathway, on which the judoka is always learning and improving.  Grading is at the heart of Judo and has its roots in the origin of the sport, when used appropriately, it is a fantastic resource for developing a judoka.
