The table below has been designed to make learning and recognising grades within Ninjutsu as simple and easy as possible.
Once you have moved beyond your white belt you are awarded with 9th Kyu and either a green or red belt (depending on your gender). After 9th Kyu you are rewarded a silver star for each level you progress up to 4th Kyu where you replace all your silver stars with a single gold star, you then receive a new gold star up until Shodan.
Once you have achieved Shodan, you remove all of your gold stars and your Bujinkan badge and are awarded a black belt and the next Bujinkan patch, you then add stars in the same fashion until you reach Judan (10th Dan).
