Recommend Ages:

Juniors 5 years old  to no more then 16 years old.

Adults 13 years old to ?

(Instructors should use their own discretion  for junior to adult maturity levels.)


You must be a minimum rank of Student Black Belt to test students. You may test a student to the level of one rank below your rank.

Yoshin Instructors should have their adult students demonstrate their belt requirements right and left handed in order from memory. No coaching or prompting is allowed. You are allowed three mistakes per test.

The adults are required to also pass a written test from the terminology page. One section per level. By 1st Degree Black Belt, the student will take the entire terminology test.

Juniors should demonstrate their techniques with the Instructor asking for each individual technique.

Class curriculum:

The individual Instructor is responsible for the curriculum that he or she uses in their classes. Instructors may teach additional techniques and principles that are not covered in the Yoshin Ryu course.

Material for testing should be from the basic Yoshin Ryu course so that students have a standard to recognize World Wide as they visit schools in different areas.

Competitions and Sparring:

Student should not be forced to spar or compete. They should also not be discouraged to do so, it is the individuals preference.

Adult sparring should not be taught until the Brown Belt level. As student need to learn control of technique.

Juniors are encouraged to start with Judo style sparring when they are ready and then move to Karate or Kumite style of sparring. Striking and kicking should be non-contact.

First Aid and Liability:

Instructors should be proficient in basic first aid and CPR. Martial arts techniques can be dangerous and deadly. Students should pass a physical before starting classes. The local Instructors are responsible for their students welfare. Instructors should always secure injury and death waivers from their students limiting liability for themselves and their school.  Be advised that you are practicing and teaching martial arts at your own risk. The American Federation of Jujitsu and the International Federation of Yoshin Ryu Jujitsu will not be held liable for the misuse of techniques or any injuries occurred while practicing or participating in the art of Jujitsu.
