What is Kyu?

Judo employs a “Dan” (Degree) and “Kyu” (Grade) ranking system to indicate levels of skill. Judo was the first martial art to adopt the ranking systems used in Go and Shogi. These “Dan” (Degree) and “Kyu” (Grade) concepts were subsequently combined, resulting in the current ranking system.
