Hudson Promotional Competitions are held twice every year to allow our members to earn competition points towards their next rank. In addition to these two tournaments, our members can also earn points by competing in the Yonezuka Cup held annually in September, and competing at national level competitions.

Below are links to Hudson Judo Yudanshakai Recommendation for Promotion, Promotional Rank Requirements that need to be reviewed by anyone planning to take an HJY Promotion Exam, Non Black Belt Waiver, and other pertinent documents.

Reminder to INSTRUCTORS: Please send me recommendations for any of your students that you promote to Sankyu, Nikyu, or Ikkyu. That way we can keep our promotion files up to date and avoid rank confusion at the promotional shiais.

Please forward your questions about promotions to Boris Muñoz E-mail: or by Phone: 646-961-2153.
