The 5th kyu grading will be held in January. We don’t usually do syllibus work in regular classes because of the high number of black belts.  Last week we did some techniques required for nidan.

Usually there are some extra sessions put on to do specifc grading preparation. I attended one of these last weekend. This was really good as my grading partner from 6th kyu and I practiced everything on the syllibus.

Many of the techniques are variations on ikkyo – “the first teaching”. This includes suwari waza and tachi waza forms from showmen uchi and katadori menuchi attacks.

We also got to practice uchi kaitenage and udekiminage which are a bit more complicated.

Hopefully there will be oportunity to get a bit more practice in before the grading…
