The Black Belt Register is kept for the purpose of assuring the public that black belt grades claimed by ju-jitsu practitioners in New Zealand are valid and reasonable. NZJJF provides verification of this. Black belts of Member Clubs may apply to have their grades recognised by NZJJF and entered on the Public Register.
The Instructor Register is kept for the purpose of assuring the public, in accordance with our Sport NZ mandate, that the ju-jitsu instructor have been educated in how to coach as an Assistant, Club or Advanced Ju-Jitsu coach. The NZJJF provides coaching education modules, and those that complete them are recognised by the NZJJF and are entered on the Public Register.
The remaining registers of International Representative, Outstanding Service Award, Referee’s and Sports Ju-Jitsu black belts are provided as a public record of the recognition given to those involved in NZJJF activities.
