BJA grading Sylabus, thumbs up. 

The BJA has done something really right (in my opinion anyway).

They have developed a completely new grading syllabus and have put all the information online so you can see.

So, if you visit: you can find all the details.

There is basically three types of grades;
Mon, Kyu and Dan grades.

The new syllabus has some good guidance and a nice easy form for use by examiners, coaches, players to ensure they have met all the criteria.

As for the syllabus, there is a big input from Andrew Moshanov and has ruffled many feathers. It certainly does not follow the Go Kyo.

I have mixed feeling on it myself. I have spoken with Andrew about the intentions and I think I understand it. If it's a good idea... time will tell.

Take a look and let me know what you think of it.
