Winter Grading 2013


We are very pleased to announce the final grading of 2013 is nearly here. The date of the grading will be on Monday 09th December for the teens and adults (13+) and Sunday 08th December for all other programmes.

We do hope that everybody will have a green light on their attendance cards at least a week before the grading, as the green light is the instructor’s approval for the student to grade. However if you do not have a green light on the attendance card please do not hesitate to speak to an instructor and we will do are very best to offer as much support as possible so he/she can achieve their green light in time for the grading.



We kindly ask you not to arrive at the club until 15 minutes before your grading time.  There will also be a belt presentation immediately after each group.


All students which are currently a green tag or above must bring their own body armour to the grading as light contact sparring is a requirement for their exam.

Grading fees must be submitted with the grading form provided over leaf; all forms must be completed in full and returned by Monday 2nd December for all members.

Please be aware that if the form is not handed in by this date you may not receive your belt on the day.


We wish you all the best of luck.
