In Thailand during the World Championships Jujitsu (Nov 2015) I’ve been asked by the All Japan Ju-Jitsu Federation to help them to build up the fighting-system-jujitsu in Japan.In September 2016 Chairman Eiichiro Toyama hosted me in Japan for the start of a good and successful collaboration. We had some seminars for fighters and referees.
Since that visit I designed the rules for leveling the referees in Japan. Also I wrote the exam program for the belt exams you find below. Of course I visit Japan since then several times and I will be visiting Japan in future to train the Core group of Japan, the referees, give seminars and private lessons. It will be my honor to do so.
Senior Supervisor of All Japan Ju-Jitsu Federation
To encourage the training of Japanese jujitsu in Fighting System
we use a belt promotion system.
Explaining the system
There is a minimum time you will practice FS (Fighting System) before you can do the technical part of the exam for your next belt. In that time you can gather your points you need in competition.
If minimum time is past and you have enough points you can do the technical exam. This is an exam with favorite techniques of the fighter
Fighting System is a competition martial art, so first gather the full points needed for the next belt.
The federation can commit a minimum age for each belt.
Points schedule for competition
The points you need to take part at the technical exam are:
Yellow, 5 --- Orange, 10 --- Green, 15
Bleu, 30 --- Brown, 50 --- 1st Dan, 75 --- 2nd Dan, 100
For color belts you do the technical exam before your own sensei
For 1st and 2nd Dan you do the technical exam before a three-sensei commission
For 3rd Dan till 5th Dan you do a full technical exam before a three-sensei commission
You can gather the points in competitions like shown in this schedule
Minimum time to get the next belt
White to Yellow, 6 month
Yellow to Orange, 9 monthOrange to Green, 1 year
Green to Bleu, 1½ years
Bleu to Brown, 1½ years
Brown to 1st Dan, 2 years
1st to 2nd Dan, 2 years
2nd to 3rd Dan, 3 years
3rd to 4th Dan, 4 years
4th to 5th Dan, 5 years
For every next Dan 5 years
Become 2 times national champ as a brown belt holder gives 1st Dan without technical exam
Become 1 time Asian/continental champ as a 1st Dan gives 2nd Dan without technical exam
Become 1 time world champ or champ at the world games as a 2nd Dan gives 3rd Dan without technical exam
On this link you have the technical requirements you have to show to the sensei(s).
The requirements are for those fighters that have enough points made at tournaments / Competition
There will be a possibility for those fighters that don’t have enough points made at tournaments / competition to make a full technical exam. This is only for Jujitsuka from above 30 years.
For the technical exam counts, that for higher belts the quantity AND the quality of shown material will be higher than previous exam.
If the quote is for example “Show, coming from part one”. That means that you show a good combination in part one before making the assignment in part two.
If the quote is for example “Show, coming from part two”. That means that you show a good throw or takedown in part two before making the assignment in part three.
Examples for exam Kyu-Belts Japanese Fighting-System-Jujitsu

You can do techniques your own way,
as long they cover the demands

My gratitude goes to:
My wife Diana, Sempai Andrea and my pupils Joey en Marwan for their selflessly cooperation with the films
They did not train for it in advance but it will give you examples
