We grade our karate students 3 times a year: February, July and December.


Grading schedule

The grading day is divided into two parts, morning and afternoon sessions. The students will register by bringing their Black Budo Book and sign in at the front desk. Students will then have a training session to go over their grading syllabus and parents will be welcomed back after this to watch the student’s grade.
