Orange belt, 4th Kyu syllabus - Ninjutsu

The contents of this page have been depreciated, updated and moved to second level ninjutsu, orange belt

The belt degree requirements previously outlined on these pages served as the foundational framework for AKBAN's Ninjutsu training for many years. These guidelines have not only inspired but have also been directly adopted by various other organizations. While we have since transitioned to the more evolved AKBAN Levels Grading System, we've chosen to preserve these original belt requirements as a resource for those who may find them useful.

Ninjutsu Grade syllabus

Second level (Orange)

Fourth level (Blue-Brown)
Brown belt, 1st Kyu, 一級
Fifth level (Black)

Orange belt grade, 四級, in Ninjutsu (4th kyu) lists the Ninjutsu techniques, martial and physical requirements in the Akban Academy. The Orange belt (רמה 2 (כתומה)), test prerequisites are at least two years in the dojo.

The tests in AKBAN form an important point in the maturation process of the martial arts trainees in Akban.
