Judo Australia defines “Mon” Girls/Boys as Junior practitioners who turn 6, 7 or 8 years old in the calendar year the grading or promotion is to occur. Kumataka Dojos min starting age is 7 years old.
In Kumataka Dojos there are 10 Kyu grades from White-yellow through to Green-blue.
The folowing links are under development and list the grade requirement for the listed belt.
White-Yellow belt (JA Minimum age 5, KD min age 7)
Yellow belt (JA min 6, KD min 8)
Yellow-Orange (JFA min 7)
Yellow-Orange Black tip
Orange belt (JFA min 8)
Orange-green belt Black tip
For grades over Green-blue the students age would put them into the next age-category. Please refer to the Yonen pages.
Members turning 9 and changing age groups should be taking three step-grades down, so a green belt would become orange in the older group – a Yellow-Orange would become White-Yellow, etc.
Prior to grading in Judo, students must register with their state body.
For practitioners in NSW, that’s Judo NSW, and for practitioners in WA, that’s JWA.
A How-to for registeration is available form the Members Docs menu item.
