The Budokan Karate Academy Kyu grading system has 9 Kyu grades beginning with 9th Kyu (White belt), through to 1st Kyu brown belt. Generally, an average time of 3-months should elapse between all these ranks.

This time however, may vary according to ability and training frequency. Please note that once the student has reached the first level brown belt (3rd Kyu), there is a further 6 months of training between 3rd Kyu, 2nd Kyu, 1st Kyu, in other words, 18 months of training before attempting Shodan from brown belt 3RD Kyu. All ranks issued are recognized around the world in all BKA member countries / dojo, and membership books are updated, by the examiner, after each grading.

The grading requirements on the following web papers are a minimum requirement for each rank, and the examiner reserves the right to deviate from this syllabus if, and when, required.
