All ZNKR grading tests from first kyu and up are taken either before the ABKF national grading commitee, or during an international seminar like the Nakakura cup or the Ishido summer seminar.
We employ a system of three levels called jo, ha and kyu not related to the Tatsumi ryu system which uses the same level names with kyu being the level where people are considered ready to try their first kyu grading test.

Muso Shinden ryu contains two or more, according to whom you ask iaio of kaido forms, the tachi uchi no kurai standing forms and the tsumi ai no kurai seated formsHowever, these are not very widely practiced, and there is even some doubt on their authenticity, given the important differences with the iai part of the ryu.
