1st Kyu Brown Belt

To progress from a solid colour belt to the next half-colour belt, the student needs to learn one half (½) of the elements required for next full level (solid colour belt). For example, to move from 11th kyu (white) to 10th kyu (half white/ half yellow) the judoka must learn half of the elements under 11th kyu.
