Yellow belt, 5th Kyu syllabus - Ninjutsu

By Yossi Sheriff

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.
