Please arrive 15 minutes before your grading is due to start. Please ensure you are familiar with the requirements for the belt you are grading for by reading the club syllabus given to you when joining the club, if you are in doubt speak with an instructor.
If this is your first time grading you must ensure you have returned your club enrolment forms and have a valid club licence and grading record.

We encourage existing club members not grading to come down and show their support. We need members of at least 1 years experience to help out, train and spar. Participants are welcome to get involved in any part of the day and take it at their own pace however fighters will be needed so full sparring kit is required. Participants are required to pay a £7.50 booking fee directly to the club in advance - this is to secure your attendance on the day and ensures we have enough participants. This is none refundable but you will receive a grenade bar, energy drink/water and a protein shake on the day (or equivalent).
We are currently planning our next Black Belt Grading for June 2022.
Members not grading are welcome to attend our classes as normal. If numbers in the class restrict a member from grading, you will be contacted and asked to chose a different lesson that week.
