For Judo you also have to pay a yearly subscription to a governing body, in my case Judo Scotland.
I haven't graded in 3 years. Going to this year though. Brown for year end.

You also have to pass a theory exam, where you are asked to demonstrate techniques. Each belt has different techniques and combinations.
bjj you dont pay for gradings iv known loads of guys just spar advanced fighters if they do good they get the belt or stripes but a brazilian has to grade you
