Anteikan Dojo Grading System
 

Aikido has a kyu-dan system similar to other martial arts. The kyu (grade) levels are white or coloured belts and represent new and intermediate level students. The dan (degree) levels are black belts, and represent various advanced practitioner levels. Note, kyu certificates are issued by the Anteikan Dojo, dan certificates are issued by the Hombu Dojo in Japan.

Grading at the Anteikan Dojo occurs after the student has spent an certain amount of time learning, and practicing exercises and techniques. Each individual student will progress at their own rate and will never be forced to grade when they aren't ready. The head instructor usually determines when a student is ready to be tested. If the student is willing and his membership is in good standing, the grading can proceed.

Performed in front of the class, a successful grading is accomplished through the demonstration, along with a partner, of the exercises and techniques that are part of each grade's syllabus. Perfection of techniques or exercises is never required nor expected of any student.

The Anteikan Dojo's belt system is as follows. Click the colour name to see the syllabus.
