JudoScotland Technical 1st Kyu & Dan National Grading Weekend

August 24 @ 9:30 am - August 25 @ 5:30 pm BST

Exciting Opportunity:


JudoScotland National 1st Kyu and Dan Technical Grading Weekend – a weekend of judo where you may complete the requirements for your next technical grade?


What is a technical Dan grade?


The Technical Dan grade is a qualification based on technical knowledge and understanding. The examiner will test that the candidate understands the key principles involved in the application of the techniques, demonstrating where appropriate best grip, attacking opportunity & movement.

There are many ways the exam may be carried out depending on any physical restrictions the candidate may have. The candidate is expected to have a greater depth of knowledge as they progress through the grades and will be examined on a progressively greater number of elements in each section to a progressively higher standard.


Do it while you still can!


There are many judoka that have a reason to ‘put off’ the learning and training for the next promotion only to regret it later on when lifestyle changes or injury prevent it. The judo grading system is great motivation to keep yourself active and expand your judo knowledge.


Am I eligible?


This opportunity is open to all JudoScotland members graded between 1st Kyu to 4th Dan (you must have been a 1st Kyu for a minimum of 5 years and be a minimum age of 20 to apply for 1st Dan). If you have not yet reached the minimum time in grade you can still attend the weekend, pass the necessary sections of the theory, then sit back and wait until you are eligible to apply for your grade.



Achievement of a new grade is attained by passing an examination and is in no way guaranteed. If you are unsuccessful you will be provided with feedback on the areas for development, may well have at least some of the sections complete and will hopefully enjoy a great weekend of judo with great people!
