Judo uses a typical ranking system for Gendai budo martial arts. There are six kyu ranks and ten dan ranks. Progression is from 6th to 1st kyu, and then from 1st to 10th dan. Colored belts include the white belt (6th kyu), yellow belt (5th kyu), orange belt (4th kyu), green belt (3rd kyu), blue belt (2nd kyu), and brown belt (1st kyu). Black belts are used from 1st to 5th dan, red and white belts from 6th to 8th dan, and solid red belts for 9th and 10th dan. Currently, the 10th dan is no longer officially awarded to anyone.
