    Point System for Rank Advancement

    Having been in TKD for 21 years I'm used to having pass/fail rank tests. The academy usually has regular rank tests scattered throughout the year.

    I've also been in BJJ for around 6 years. From what I've seen, it is pretty much a "merit" system. You get promoted when the Professor feels you are ready. Maybe there is a test. Maybe you've won some competitions.


    There is a local BJJ school in the Twin Cities that holds monthly reviews. The students get together, are paired off by rank/weight, and record the results of their matches. Students doing well earn stripes/belts. I've been playing with this concept, this "point" system in my head.

    Does anyone know of a "traditional" school that runs rank advancement like this? Instead of a pass/fail test each belt (and perhaps stripes in a belt) is assigned a point value. Every month a student demonstrates their Forms, One-steps, Self-Defense, Sparring, Board Breaking, etc. to earn points towards promotion.

    In Canada, you need the points to be able to test. You still have to take the test. Plus we don't do it for mudansha.
