Junior & Senior Gradings @ Cairns Southside Judo Club
Judo competency can be assessed by way of belt colour. The order of belt colours is white (including White-Yellow) to yellow to orange to green to blue to brown to black. For Junior (under 16 year), there are also black stripes on the belt (none, one, two or three). The black stripes indicated intermediate skill levels within that belt. For example the young judoka with a yellow belt and 1 black stripe has demonstrated a level of competency above a player with a yellow belt and no black stripe. And any player with full coloured belt that has 3 black stripes will be ready soon to grade to the next full coloured belt. ALL gradings at our Cairns Southside club are competency based.
Progression of Grades/Belts for Juniors (5-15 year old Judoka)
Minimum Skills Competencies For Each Junior Grade/Belt
Judo competency can be assessed by way of belt colour and any black stripes on the belt (none, one, two or three). Our competency based requirements (as a minimum) for each Junior (Under 16 yrs) grade follow.
