Yellow belt requirments
 
(srry about spelling)

My yellow belt requirments (for test) were:


The 5 basic hand streches
Shico(knee walking)
Rolls (front and back) from standing
Shomunuchi eacheo irimi
Two step
Partner 2 step

Curious about other testing requirments for yellow belt

Mine were:
katatori ikkyo (irimi, tenkan, mae nage)
katate kosatori kotegeishi ( irimi, tenkan)
katate kosatori kokyunage
demonstration of 3 basic strikes empty handed and with bokken.
And some basic aiki taiso.

All organizations are little different.

Which Kyu is yellow? Everyone's tests are different. Just like some of the names are different. I have no idea what a "ho" is? hehe.

I think yellow in most dojos is 6th kyu. My dojo doesn't use colored belts for the adult classes (the ones I'm in) but for the kids classes, since they start a nanakyu, and yellow is the first COLORED belt they get, I'm assuming it's rokkyu

In my dojo, we don't have colored belts for the adults classes. But our first test is 5th kyu and our test requirements are:

Shomenuchi ikyyo omote and ura
Shomenuchi iriminage omote and ura
Gyakyu Hanmi Katatetori Shihonage omote and ura
Tsuki Kotegaeshi omote and ura
Ushiro Tekubitori Kotegaeshi omote and ura
Morotetori Kokyunage (irimi, tenkan and tenshin openings)

We have a yellow belt and that for our kids class. A yellow belt is 10th kyu, and its requirements are:

Bow
right and left hanmi
forward and backwards shikko
kneeling and standing forward and backwards rolls
ikkyo exercise
irimi, tenkan and tenshin opening movements
irimi, tenkan and tenshin kokyunage throws
And approaching the test they have to demonstrate following instructions and paying attention in class.

My sensei also teaches Chong Shin Kwan, a TKD/Karate hybrid, at the dojo. I suppose he just uses the colored belts of TKD in the aikido classes out of convenience. White is 8th kyu and yellow is 7th.

Our yellow belt requirements look similar to this...

...although we were only actually tested on ikkyo, kotegaeshi, and kokyunage.

Re: Yellow belt requirments
 
Our test for yellow (the first test to be taken, yellow being gokyu) contains:

at least 6 months of training
ushiro ukemi
basic footwork (tenkan ashi, irimi ashi, tai sabaki)
ikkyo and shiho nage (both irirmi and tenkan) against ai hanmi, gyaku hanmi, ryote tori, katate ryote tori and mune tori attacks.

Re: Yellow belt requirments
 
yellow's our 2nd grading.

shiho nage (ai hamni, katate tori, irimi&tenkan)
Irimi nage (yokomen uchi)
Ikkyo (katate tori, kata tori, irimi&tenkan)
Nikyo (katate tori, kata tori).

And of cours you should have improved the techniques for with belt:
Ikkyo (ai hamni, shomen unchi, irimi&tenkan)
Irimi nage (ai hamni, shomen uchi)
mae ukemi
ushiro ukemi
tai sabaki

btw. Hi Sonja, I met Sven and Zoran this weekend during seminar.

5th kyu is representitave of yellow in our org.

It comprises of: Mae ukemi, Ushiro Ukemi, Shikko, Tai-sabaki and Tai-No-Henko.

Then Against Ai hanmi katate tori, tori has to perform ikkyo, nikkyo, sankyo, yonkyo, shihonage, kotegaeshi, iriminage, kaitennage and tenchinage (both irimi and tenkan versions).

Any defences against shomen-uchi also.

The first 3 bokken suburi.

And depending on the instructor they may throw some random stuff in, generally some suwari-waza and handmi han dachi.

Re: Yellow belt requirments
 
At my dojo you don't need any weapons work until you go for 5th kyu. You'll need 1-5 jo suburi and 1-7 bokken suburi.

We are both Chudokai, Eric :D Did you attend the most recent seminar with Shihan Blok?

MaryKaye 05-09-2005 03:04 PM

Re: Yellow belt requirments
 
Not sure which one would be yellow belt for us, but if it's the second test that would be fourth kyu. A bunch of hitori waza, kokyu dosa, shomenuchi kokyunage, yokomenuchi shihonage tenkan/irimi and tenkan/tenkan, munetsuki koteoroshi, kata tori ikkyo irimi and tenkan.

Lately it's been made clear to us that when the head instructor says "And every technique on every test below yours, in order, by memory" she is NOT KIDDING. Lots of scrambling to review old criteria....

Re: Yellow belt requirments.. Hand stretching?
 
quick question... what exactly are the 5 basic hand stretches, i've never done any formal hand stretching

AikiSean! 05-09-2005 11:55 PM

Re: Yellow belt requirments
 
Wrist stretches is probably what was ment. You know just going through the different wrist teachings on yourself to stretch before class.

Re: Yellow belt requirments
 
Michael, if yellow is your second grading, then what is your first?

I am sure you had fun at your seminar, I am looking forward to practicing with the two dudes tonight ;-)

Nick Simpson 05-10-2005 02:17 AM

Re: Yellow belt requirments
 
I would imagine 'white belt' is the first grading in that dojo?

Thought so, but as we donīt have any grading for white (our first testing is done for yellow, apart from kids and teenagers, who can test for white-yellow) I wasnīt sure.

Re: Yellow belt requirments
 
It's been quite funny when we had the training session with the TKD group. In our dojo people start with a red belt, which ist the the equivalent to our brown/1st kyu in TKD.
