We run pre - grade Childrens karate class on the day of the grading. It is a specialist class for children who already have 3 silver stripes on their belt or children who are very close to grade and need a final stripe. The classes are aimed solely at giving our students extra practice on their grade work an hour before the grading begins.
This class has many benefits. As well as being a refresher on all grade work for the students, it also includes work on breathing, strength and focus etc. Other benefits include: last minute answers to any questions the student has regarding their grade work and an extra confidence boost to shake off any nerves. All very important for helping the student pass their grade as well as achieving a good pass mark. There is no need to pre-book for this lesson, just come along on the day.
