FAQ - frequently asked questions

How to join us: 

All courses run consecutively for the whole year, except the USI-courses (for more information check out the following link: www.usi.at). trial lesson is always possible (except for the USI-courses)!

attentionAt the University Sports Institute of Vienna (USI) a trial lesson is only possible at the first unit of each course, related on the semester.

You will find an overview of all offered courses here.

equipment: 

For those, who decide to join our association or take part in the training, should consider buying a "Gi" ("trainings-suit"). "Gis" are availaible at several sports outfitters, mostly under the description "Judo-G"i or "Jujitsu-Gi". But there is also the possibility to buy a "Gi" online. It is important to buy it approximately 5 to 10 cm larger, because of possible shrinkage during the first washing. Furthermore you will need a "Gi", which withstands high forces. A "Karate-Gi" or "Tae Kwon Do-Gi" is therefore not suitable, because of the lighter material. 

belt-grades: 

There are 6 Kyu-grades / belts (student-grades) in the colours white (6. Kyu, beginners), yellow (5. Kyu), orange (4. Kyu), green (3. Kyu), blue (2. Kyu) and brown (1. Kyu), followed by 10 Dan-grades (black belts, master-grades). After the 1. Kyu follows the 1. Dan, then the 2. Dan and so on. At official occasions owners of the 6. and 7. Dan wear a red-white belt, owners of the 8. and 9. Dan wear a red belt and owners of the 10. Dan wear a white belt, doubled in width.

From the 5. Kyu until the 6. Dan, grades are achieved via belt exams. For Dan-examinations an official invitiation is required. From the 7. Dan forward grades are achieved via promotion. If you are interested to gain a black belt in Jujitsu, 4 to 5 years of intensive and consistent training are required.

To be admitted for a belt exam, you need to be a member of our association (SHOBUKAI AUSTRIA). You will find more information about registration and costs here.

physical requirements: 

Jujitsu is suitable for every person (see principles of Jujitsu), which is interested in learning this martial art, concerning physical requirements, age and sex. 

tournaments: 

are strictly refused in all traditional japanese Jujitsu Ryu. As the Ryu (Kawaishi Ryu) practiced in our association is also a traditional Ryu (Nippon Jujitsu), tournaments are refused as well.

expenditure of time: 

We recommend a pensum of 2 to 3 training sessons a week, to achieve good training success.
