I am going to talk about belt testing and my experience with it! I personally have had 2 belt tests in the Yudansha fighting system, different schools and different martial arts have their own unique style of testing. I am going to go over Yudansha fighting system and my experiences I have had! Since the philosophy of Yudansha comes from three parts of a combative engagement first, the standing phase, next the clinch phase and last the ground phase! Yudansha philosophy is it is better to be good at all three than just be good in one. You have heard the term well rounded in the U.F.C. or MMA matches because they have to be good at all aspects of the game. Yudansha fighting systems first part of the belt test is going over techniques with a uke (or training partner) a good uke is ideal because you do not want the person resisting the techniques a good uke will have good break falls and not resist the throw to ensure good Kata or form. Judo is a big part of the test, here are a couple techniques, Seoi-nage or shoulder throw, O-Soto-Gari or major throw, these are from Gokyo or greenbelt here is one from yonkyo or blue belt Sukui-nage or scoop throw. In the yudansha system there is also wrestling techniques, your single leg and double leg take downs as well as firemans carry and so on. After going over techniques there is the Randori part or live judo. then on to live sparing that has boxing, muay thai , and ground work( jiu-jitsu). This part will test you mentally as well as physically because the test is three 5 min. rounds in each, judo, stand up, and jiu-jitsu with fresh people alternating, I personally train my cardio and get a lot of mat time like I am training for a fight because 45 min. of live sparing is grueling! But also very rewarding when you complete!
Till Next Time!
