Kyusho Black Belt FAQ - Courses

There are basically 2 different ways you can take your understanding and knowledge of Kyusho to a level of a Black Belt in the art. We offer 2 basic course for the beginning in 2 different forms.

The first is the Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course, which is for the martial artists who wishes to acquire a working proficiency in the art, and then grade for a Black Belt level. 

The second is the Novice Kyusho Jitsu Instructor Certification Course which is for the martial artist who believes they would like to teach. Everything in the Kyusho Jitsu Home Study Course is included in the instructor course, plus the additional for teacher levels.

Kyusho Black Belt FAQ - How complete is the course?

The course themselves cover the same information and the same requirements that we use for in Dojo classes. There are no shortcuts, and nothing missing! These systems have been in place and working well for 15 plus years of teaching.  And the courses also have full email support from myself and my staff. 

Kyusho Black Belt FAQ - What does grading cost?

In these downloadable distance learning courses grading is included in the price. This includes the issuing and mailing of real certificates of rank. The same certificates I issue to my in Dojo students. The normal cost for an in Dojo grading is $300. 

Kyusho Black Belt FAQ - How is grading done?

When you feel you understand the content you can submit your grading.  For Novice Level there is a written exam and a practical exam.  The written exam is completed and emailed to myself.

There are 2 days that the practical exam can be done. The best method is to video yourself completing the requirements and submitting them perhaps by Dropbox or other cloud services.  The second is via Skype, which is much more complicated due to scheduling issues. 

Kyusho Black Belt FAQ - Can I fail?

Yes you most certainly can fail and people do! One free retest is allowed. After this there is a FEE for further retesting. However I believe the majority of martial artists take their training seriously so this has not yet been an issue. 

Kyusho Black Belt FAQ - Do you honour rank from other organizations?

Yes I certainly do! There are many outstanding Kyusho Jitsu Masters and teachers in the world, and therefore I respect their work! You will need to provide images of certificates for recognition.  

Also if you wish certificates of rank recognition from us there is a FEE. Please email me for details.
