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.
For fighters of 30 and older with a valid reason, the demand of competition points can be deleted or minimized from the demands. This is a task for the federation. If so, the technical part must be from a higher level.
The (national) 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 till 5th Dan you do a full technical exam before a three-sensei commission from the (national) federation recognized by the JJIF
