There are nine kyu levels in Koga Ninjitsu before you obtain your black belt.
Koga has structured the kyu levels carefully to enhance your learning experience. Each kyu level from ninth to first kyu has a 4 months training period. At the end of each 4 month period if you are eligible, there is a grading held by a panel of black belts.
First kyu to first dan (black belt) there is a year training period.
Below is a summary of the kyu levels:
Students wear black martial arts gi with a green belt marked with up to nine white ribbons denoting their highest graded kyu level. All official gear can be purchased by members at discount prices directly from Koga.
New students are allowed to wear any comfortable active wear, preferably black in colour, until their first grading.
Training fees for 2017 are currently at R275 per month for 4 hours per week. Reduced fees are applicable for students that can train only 2 hours per week.
