Junior black belts Star Gradings once you're a 1st Dan,

Gradings: Junior black belts strive to improve their skills and earn Star Gradings (levels 1, 2 or 3) as they go. As a junior black belt (under 16) you study the black belt syllabus & taking Star Gradings each year. Earning a Star 1,2 or 3 is a promotion above the normal 1st Dan. Then, when you have passed the three gradings (or after your 4th year / or at 16 years old, whichever is soonest), you can apply for your final 2nd Dan grading. 

16 year olds who are not yet eligable to actually take their 2nd or for whatever reason who do not take their 2nd Dan within 10 months directly after their 16th Brithday must follow the normal adult requirements and hence you must also attend & pass the relevant Umpires Course before you apply to grade.

** Junior black belts note: Grading time between gradings is measured in "Adult training months". Therefore to clarify, if you grade for black belt whilst under 16yrs old then this is calculated as follows:  Any training time that you (the student) completes between Dan grades whilst you are still under 16 years of age counts as half of the "Adult" training time. Once the student reaches 16 years old, then their training months are counted as Adult training months. The student must complete the equivalent of 24 Adult months training (ie: 24 months Adult training time) between 1st & 2nd Dan. ** (updated 30/09/21)

All black belts (all ages, all grades) must still attend pre-gradings each & every 6 months period as usual.

Please ensure that you follow Coloured belt Resources  and Black Belt Resources for your grade. Also News, Calendar.
