Jōjutsu  Promotion Requirements

In 2010 the Nippon Kobudō Jikishin-Kai ("JKI") established a dan-kyū ranking system specifically for Shindō Musō-Ryū jōjutsu, which now allows IWU Budōkai students to obtain JKI-certified ranking, rather than just dōjō ranking, if they wish. 

The table below summarizes the requirements of the IWU Budōkai and JKI for promotion in Shindō Musō-Ryū jōjutsu up to the rank of Shodan:
