Eligibility Criteria
In order to be considered for the October grading, we need to see a commitment to training in the weeks leading up to the grading.
Beginners (White Belts and Yellow Stripes) are almost always ready to move up to the next grade. Those with higher grades might require more time to develop skills that we assess such as advanced techniques, power, discipline, to name a few. 
Contained within our Google Drive you will find useful videos of patterns you may need, exercises for you to practice in your own time, theory information sheets and syllabus sheets that outline the types of techniques you may be asked to perform during your grading.
You can gain access to this resource by clicking here.
In the past few weeks, the instructors have told every student if they have received an invitation to the grading. If you received a ‘Yes’ from the instructors then you can proceed to enter the grading.
Private sessions (In person OR Online)
Over the last year, many students have benefited greatly from investing in our offer of private tuition. We continue to offer private online sessions or in person private sessions at a time that suits you.
If you would like more information on these please contact us.
