Karate World Ratings

Jiu Jitsu/Ju-jitsu/Ju-jutsu Circuit

 

However you spell it, Karate World Ratings moves forward by adding the Ju Jutsu Circuit to the rating system. Ju Jutsu competitors who become members of Karate World Ratings will be tracked based on points determined by the place a competitor wins and the level of rating of sanctioned event. (See Chart Below)

 

Karate World Ratings is an independent rating system, which was organized to promote the sport of Point Karate, Continuous Contact Karate and Kickboxing. Sport Karate is a competitive sport and martial arts discipline, which challenges the physical and mental attributes of the competitors and contributes to the fitness and the health of both the young and the old. The practice of martial arts builds character, self-confidence, self-reliance, and leads to sound competitive values, which in turn gives rise to good sportsmanship, good instructors and good citizens.

 

Karate World Ratings is a system based on points earned by competitors participating in rated events. All Ju Jutsu competitors have the option to join Karate World Ratings by purchasing a membership card. Only members will be tracked throughout the year and only members who display good sportsmanship will be displayed in the Top 10 in all publications and on the Karate World website.

 

In order to be fair to all promoters and to better serve the competitor, The Ratings System has been divided into Adult, Teen and Children divisions. The divisions will be broken down into male & female categories. Changes will be made based on the number of members and participants in sanctioned events.

 

These categories were created to provide an opportunity for the youth and adults, male or female competitors in black belt or under-belt divisions to have an equal opportunity to become the number one competitor of their skill level.

There are three
categories of people in Martial Arts

N.O.R.M.A.L the few who make things happen,
PROCRASTINATORS the many who watch
things happen,
and the MAJORITY who has no idea what happened.

 

No matter what style, system, Master or Grand Master you are dedicated to this quote applies to you. The National Organization of Registered Martial Arts League is for Martial Artist who want to make a difference in the martial arts not just in their communities but around the world.

N.O.R.M.A.L. members are involved in the life ofthe martial arts in many ways. N.O.R.M.A.L. recognizes the importance of the special relation­ships which practioners first experience as students and continue to share after their advancement to black belt.
