Black Belt Certification


Styles such as Danzan Ryu or Yoshin Ryu etc. use a common curriculum from school to school. Many individual schools use their own curriculum designed by their head Instructor. Because of different styles of Martial Arts, I am sure in your Dojo, your list of belt requirements would be different then what I use in my school. However, no matter where you travel in the World, you would recognize a Jujitsu School. They all demonstrate the following techniques:

Stances and Movements
Evasive Maneuvers
Falling Techniques
Blocking Techniques
Striking Techniques
Kicking Techniques
Locking Techniques
Throwing Techniques
Grappling Techniques
Strangling Techniques
Weapon Disarming Techniques

Instructors that use modern systems or that do not work under a higher level Instructor are advanced to higher black belt ranking under the Federation by their time in rank and for their dedication to the Martial Arts community and for their promotion of the AFJ. If you are an AFJ Instructor  you  can advance to a higher level by teaching for the required time between ranks and then request rank advancement by filling out an AFJ application. To maintain high Federation standards, and to discourage Instructors from collecting "inaccurate wall certificates", all AFJ Instructors ranked above 1st Degree Black Belt are required to actively promote the style of Martial Art or Arts, in which they are registered. Failure to comply with this policy may result in  your upper Black Belt rank reverting back to 1st Degree Black Belt. If you are promoting your listed style of Martial Art again, please send a letter to the Federation stating your intentions and your original rank will be reinstated at no cost. Time equivalent to 1st Degree Black Belt is 3 years of training. A basic time guide for further advancement is as follows:

2nd Degree after 2 years as a 1st Degree Black Belt
3rd Degree after 3 years as a 2nd Degree Black Belt
4th Degree after 4 years as a 3rd Degree Black Belt
5th Degree after 5 years as a 4th Degree Black Belt
6th Degree after 6 years as a 5th Degree Black Belt
7th Degree after 7 years as a 6th Degree Black Belt
8th Degree after 8 years as a 7th Degree Black Belt
9th Degree after 9 years as a 8th Degree Black Belt
10th Degree after 10 years as a 9th Degree Black Belt

Founders of new Martial Arts Systems time in rank may differ from the above time schedule.
