Promotion Requirements Being Used

The Shufu Board of Examiners has implemented the changeover to the USJF promotional requirements.  The 2022 Shufu Summer/Fall Promotional will follow the “2021 Final Handbook Revision with Added Techniques”, available on the Shufu website under Promotions. All ranks within Shufu’s promotion authority are required to do the physical testing, i.e. all ranks through and including Godan.  Rokudan and above are not required to do physical testing; Kata requirements still apply as required for rank sought.
