British Judo Association (BJA) 5th Mon to 6th Mon Junior Syllabus requirements and help.

Welcome to another in this series on the BJA (British Judo Association) Mon grade syllabus. This series is designed to help you as a parent ensure that your child feels confident they know all they need to know before attending a grading. This helps ensure they have a positive experience. For more information the official BJA guidance is available at http://britishjudo.org.uk/technical/gradings_home.php

Candidates are required to:

NOTES
1.  Nage-komi is introduced for this grade. It is to be demonstrated in the form of light randori which will be of approximately
two minutes duration with each judoka throwing alternately. Although throws may be repeated, the examiner will expect
to see a variety of techniques and, if possible, to both right and left sides.
2.  Kumi-kata is a requirement for this grade and the judoka is required to demonstrate the standard grips and alternatives.
3.  For the personal choice element, the judoka is required to demonstrate their favourite waza which may be demonstrated
either to the right or to the left with any suitable grip.
