GRADINGS – PROGRESSION
Advancing through the belt systems requires regular class attendance, focus, effort, discipline and practice.
Over time and as experience is gained, students are able to progress through a belt system, learning and demonstrating ever more complex techniques.
Assessment of a student’s level of ability is carried out at set intervals and after specific techniques from the syllabus have been learned.
These assessments are called Gradings.
