CJKF holds regular testing for

Kyu (colour belts) and dan (black belt) levels.

Every student is tested against international guide lines as set by JKA headquarters. Each level has a specific set of requirements and gradually increase in complexity. This aids the student in understanding his or her progress and helps the instructor in determining the students training needs.

Much like the school system each level builds on the previous level. It is therefore important that the student firmly grasp the requirements for one level before moving to the next.

Tests are conducted in a fair and impartial manner with each student testing against the standard although age and physical limitations

may also be taken into consideration.

Students are tested in three areas:

Kihon (basics)

          Kata (form exercise)

     Kumite (sparring)


We have listed the requirements for each Kyu and Dan level

Kyu Requirements


There are minimum time requirements between the various kyu levels.

These are either three (3) months or six (6) months.

The time requirements are based on training at least 3 times a week

Therefore 3 months would mean at least 35-40 classes and 6 months would be at least 75-80 classes.
