There is the method of testing for next rank by demonstrating technique and what not.

But I know there is another method where someone has to fight a number of the higher rank and beating them all in a row. I was talking to someone today about it and I couldn't come up with the name of that method.

Any help?

The first method you are referring to is called a promotional examination that is used for each promotion for rank white belt up thru 1st degree brown belt by USJF. The second method I have been told (by a USJA sensei) is the randori method where the student fights in succession a number of class mates at that next rank and higher to "test" their skills for promotion. I hope USJA instructors can explain this method more.

there are tournament in which you fight people of the same rank, with the winner staying in untill they are defeated. I got promote to nidan this way; I beat six shodans. You can also compete and earn points for beating different grades (belts); I got promoted to yodan this way. If you are competing keep a record of who you beat and where you compete. You need to look at whatever organization (usji, usjf ,usja) you belong to requirements.Btw, after yodan it depends on who you know!

Would you guys happen to know the Japanese name of the method where you have to beat a certain number of higher belts in a row?

So, hypothetically, if you have one really good throw, you could rank up quite high in Judo despite not having even a 5th of the Kodokan syllabus?

That would depend on which country you are in and which association is doing the grading. It is not uniform.
