Brain-Jitsu was a British children's game show that ran on CBBC from 25th February - 28th March 2008, 25 episodes were made. In this show, contestants (known as brainees) competed in a series of games meant to use parts of the brain like the occipital lobes and the cerebellum. After each challenge, one brainee is eliminated whilst the rest gain a higher level brain belt. The show is led and commentated by the Sensei, whilst the Shihan organises and watches over the tasks.
At the start of the show, all eight brainees begin with a white belt. At the start of each following level, the brainees who are yet to be eliminated are given a higher brain belt levels (worn around their forehead). There are 7 levels of brain belt in the show:
- Level 1 - Yellow Belt - This level uses the occipital lobes of the Brain. The task here is always Enter the Dojo.
- Level 2 - Orange Belt - This level uses the frontal lobes; requiring the brainees to do something they would normally do without thinking differently.
- Level 3 - Green Belt - This level requires the brainees to get into teams of two, each of the pair using a different half of their brain.
- Level 4 - Blue Belt - This level uses the amygdala as brainees are challenged to overcome fear.
- Level 5 - Red Belt - This level exercises the thinking part of the brain, the cerebrum, and the doing part, the Cerebellum.
- Level 6 - Brown Belt - This level requires the brainees to use their occipital lobes, temporal lobes and cerebellum.
- Level 7 - Black Belt - The two remaining contestants push a ball across a table using their focus. The force with which the ball is pushed is measured by the average amount of brain waves used during the challenge.
Between each level, contestants get the chance to prepare themselves for the challenge ahead in The Room Of Mental Nourishment. They are given a challenge to train the part of the brain needed for the next level. The brainees are given the choice whether to participate or not, but any extra training they do prepares them for the task ahead. The loser of each level is interviewed in a Walk of Eternal Regret. Sometimes a segment called Brainy, Not So Brainy is shown between some levels.
Like many programs that ran on CBBC in the 2000s, It had limited broadcast reruns and fell into obscurity for many years. Beginning on February 9th 2021, a user on Internet Archive called Children's BBC Programming started uploading episodes of Brain-Jitsu after being off the air for 13 years.
