Grading

As you progress with your trainings, your knowledge and performance will be tested in a form of grading.

  • Club Gradings are held every 3 months - March, June, September and December.
  • Students are normally informed by the instructor one or two sessions in advance if they are permitted to attempt it.
  • All students should be ready to start on-time and be wearing a clean gi with badges, have an up-to-date licence and pads to participate in the sparring.
  • Students attempting 8th kyu and above are also expected to have knowledge of the terminology. The higher the grade, the greater the knowledge required!
  • Information about techniques and grading requirements can be found in Syllabus
