Dan Grading Dates

Dan Grading for Men and Women – Kidderminster

10th July 2022

This is a dan grading for men and women currently graded 1st kyu to 4th dan.
This follows our previous extremely successful grading for men in February where we had the following entrants:
Men: 32 1st kyu, 14 1st dan, 7 2nd dan, 6 3rd dan and 3 4th dan.

Our women’s dan grading in October attracted 21 1st kyu and dan grades despite clashing with two major events. We therefore confidently expect a high turnout of all grades for
this grading.

We ask people to enter early in advance so that we can inform others interested in attending as to how many players there are in each grade section.
Masters will be paired together where reasonably possible.

Male 1st kyu: 9.30 – 9.50 am

Male Dan grades: 11.30-12.00 noon

All women 2.30-3.00 pm

All candidates must hold current BJA membership and be a minimum of 15 years of age. Candidates must be BJA 1st kyu or above. Players holding AJA or BJC grades and wishing to convert to BJA grades are also welcome, please contact us by email to discuss, well in advance of the event.

For dan grades, please note that it is the COMPETITIVE dan grade which is the relevant grade. For example, a competitive 2nd dan who holds a technical 3rd dan is regarded for the purposes of this grading as a 2nd dan.

Entry fee: £20 if booked & paid in advance (online or postal). £25 if paid on the day. Spectators free.

Even if you intend to pay on the day, please email with your intention to enter so that we know who is coming.

Postal entries to: Andrew Haffner, 2 Conifer Heights, Knightwick, Worcs WR6 5PP. Cheques payable to: SAMURAI JUDO CLUB.
