Judo Seniors Grading Syllubus

IBF Examiners have the authorization to grade to 1st Kyu Brown Belt. All Dan grades are examined by Martin Clarke 8th Dan or his chosen representative.

Kata plays a very important part of the IBF Dan Grade syllabus.

Honorary Grades are given for long time or distinguished service.

Kyu grades are from –

  • 6th Kyu White
  • 5th Kyu Yellow
  • 4th Kyu Orange
  • 3rd Kyu Green
  • 2nd Kyu Blue
  • 1st Kyu Brown

The IBF since its inception has always insisted that candidates must have an up to date IBF License

  • They must observe all Judo Etiquette
  • They must present themselves in a clean and tidy manner
  • They must wear the correct Judogi attire, which must be clean and fit correctly
  • There will be no cheering or clapping as a grading is an examination not a competition
