Gradings

Your progress is monitored by the instructor during every class.  However, progress can only be sincerely tested by the challenge of an exam by the club's grading examiners.

 

The club uses a belt system to indicate grading level.

 

Gradings are optional and the decision to grade is entirely yours.  If you do decide to grade then there is a mimum number of  classes during the three month or six month period between gradings.
