Welcome to the Kyusho Jitsu University Grading Website.  This is the place to be if you are looking to grade under the Kyusho Jitsu World Alliance but are NOT enrolled at our University.

How Does Grading Work?

Depending on the rank you are seeking there is a physical exam that is done by video and submitted to myself. For anyone seeking the rank of 1st Dan Black Belt in Kyusho Jitsu, or Level One Instructor Certification there is also a written exam.

Here is the cost breakdown for you:

Below is a breakdown of the cost for the various ranks up to but not including 4th Dan Black Belt or Level 4 Instructor Certification. The cost of grading includes ONE retest in the event of not obtaining a passing grade. All fees are paid in advance through this website.

  • Grading via this website to ANY Level of Black Belt is $75
  • Grading via this website to Certified Instructor is $125

At the menu above are breakdowns for the different ranks. You must be a 1st Dan Black Belt to grade for 2nd Dan . Skipping rank is not allowed as this is not a belt factory. If you have rank from another Kyusho Jitsu Organization you must submit a photo of the rank to be granted recognition.

Once you enter the page and pay your fee you will be given copies of the applicable exams. Download the information and then after you have written and / or videoed the requirements they will be emailed to me at

It is all very simple!

Certificates will be issued upon successful completion of exams. These may take 6-8 weeks to arrive to destinations outside of Canada. So please be patient! Depending the destination and postal service this will either be very fast or very slow, but they will arrive!

All the requirements for the different ranks are available upon request. There are no tricks, and I also allow questions prior to the exams being submitted to clarify things. Because each system is often different and working can also vary from system to system I am always open to questions.

Getting Started

To begin the process select the rank you wish to qualify for. If the rank is currently not listed simple email me directly at so I can make arrangements for you.

I wish you great success on your journey! The art and science of pressure point self defense called Kyusho Jitsu is exciting!

Yours in the arts,
