A grading is a test for a new belt. Promotions are an important occasion for students as they represent goals set and achieved. The colour of one's belt indicates the current level of knowledge.
On grading day, students check in 15 minutes prior to the start of testing. Late arrivals will not be permitted to test. During the grading we evaluate the following:
After the grading Sensei evaluates each student individually and considers all information before issuing results. The outcome is based on ability, enthusiasm, attitude, conviction, intensity and an overall performance understanding of applied principles as well as class performance.
Students will receive the news of promotion a couple of weeks following the testing. Belts are awarded during class shortly after. Parents are welcome to view their child receiving their belt and take photos during presentation.
