When registering new SJJI members who already have a Black Belt in Ju-Jitsu it is important to understand the difference between homologation or validation of their Ju-Jitsu rank and a promotion into a official SJJI rank.
Homologation is the issuance of SJJI credentials for a Ju-Jitsu Black Bedlt possessed by a prospective or current SJJI member when that rank has been issued by a SJJI recognized Ju-Jitsu organization.
Homologation is the method by which an Instructor can register a new Member (Brown Belt or higher) who has proof of rank in the form of a certificate that is recognized by the Japan Staff and the SJJI Technical Board.
Of course SJJI does require that our minimum ages are considered when applying for Homologated Certification for Rank trhat were issued by other Ju-Jitsu organizations.
