The minimum waiting time between gradings are based on a minimum of 2 training sessions per week.

Grading is every 2 months, If a student misses a grading, they may take it at any of our other venues. Don’t forget to bring your membership card that has up to date insurance, If you are a beginner then your membership card will be ready for you on the grading day.

KARATE

All Karate students must wear a clean pressed uniform (GI) (in white) with badges worn on left side of the breast of the karate uniform. grading for red belt 11kyu membership and insurance must be up to date.

Students grading for orange stripe belt 8th kyu must have their own sparing kit equipment. Students without sparring equipment will automatically drop a pass mark which could result in the student failing their grade.
Students grading for black belt 1st dan a heavyweight uniform (gi) must be worn.
No jewellery at all to be worn.

KICKBOXING

Kickboxing Students must wear the SAMA Kickboxing uniform. Grading for Red Belt grade must have wraps. Going for Orange Belt grade must try to have their own 16oz gloves once you get into your training it’s always better to obtain your own equipment ie: skipping rope, bag gloves, etc. (this will help you to train more proficiently.)

Students may only take their next grading if they have served enough time & have 3 black stripes on their belt. All students will be told if they are grading by their Instructor.

Going for Black belt grade, Student must show proper respect and good manners, Minimum waiting for black belt grade is 6 months, however, Sensei/Senpai will make the final decision after passing the pre-grade (mock) exam.

PRE-GRADE KARATE

We run pre-grade Children’s 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.
