Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) instabilities with a frequency sweeping and then saturation of frequency as qmin decrease have been observed during Negative-ion-based Neutral Beam (NNB) injection in JT-60U Weak Shear (WS) plasmas. The frequency evolution of those MHD instabilities can be explained by Reversed-Shear-induced Alfv$'e$n Eigenemode model or Alfv$'e$n Cascade model. In recent experiments, a confinement degradation of energetic ions by such instabilities was clearly observed. In this work, we evoluate the confinement degradation of energetic ions by the instabilities usigng measurement of total neuron flux and neutron emission profile. Further, we will compare the confinement degradation by the above instabilities with that by Abrupt Large-amplitude Events (ALEs), which are bursting modes.
