Mid Year DAN Grading Prep Session-2

August 5, 2023

The Judo NSW Black Belt Register (BBR) looks to prepare black belt candidates (Shodan and above) for their upcoming Dan Grading (20th August 2023) by reviewing black belt Judo technical requirements as described in the latest “Judo Australia National Grading Policy.” At the end of the three day session, attendees should feel confident to meet the Dan grading panel to demonstrate their Judo knowledge.

Refereeing skill and knowledge are outside the scope of the study group.  While primarily focused on black belt promotion candidates, 2nd and 1st Kyu grade cadets and seniors are welcome to attend.

The study group shall meet as follows:

  • Date: 29th July, 5th August, 12th August (Saturdays)
  • Session Times: 10 AM-12:00 Noon (to review Kata) and 1:30 – 4:00pm (to review technical requirements)
  • Place: Judo NSW Martial Arts Dojo, Newington Armoury


The study group will be led by BBR instructors, but the study group will be highly interactive as Dan promotion candidates will show and explain to each other the techniques in Tachiwaza (standing techniques) and Newaza (mat techniques). All Dan promotion candidates are expected to have reviewed and study the grading policy, as well as to have a working knowledge of their Kata.  Candidates who do not have a working knowledge of their Kata, should begin attending the Saturday Kata classes (10am, Judo NSW Martial Arts Dojo, Silverwater) as soon as possible.
