I'm a newbie to the site, been practicing/studying JJ for about a year and seven months now. Green is the Fourth belt we grade to. the order is as follows.
Red (ungraded), white, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple, brown, 1st dan etc. The first few belts you normally would be ready for after 3 months, the later belts take longer to get ready for, with one year between brown and 1st dan.
The syllabus is really quite good. http://www.jujitsuireland.com/syllabus.asp It concentrates on throws and locks, as per, but we also get a lot of sparring and grapple work done.

Personally, I don't really like WJJF, but it's probably decent enough.
Jikishin was a splinter from the Robert Clarke/WJJF line I believe.
