Gradings

Sign-Up For Beginner Course
We conduct three gradings and mock assessments per year. Students who wish to grade must attend at least 80% of lessons and workshops. Students are also required to attend and pass their mock Assessments. All gradings are conducted under the strict guidelines of the Karate Society. We also have external examiners overseeing our practice on a regular basis to ensure we are compliant with regulatory policies and procedures.
