Following the cancelled grading the new grading date is January 14th same venue, same times.

Only people already noted on the list can attend and Brown belt assessments as normal. If you didn’t hand in your licence don’t forget to bring this with you as there are no lessons now before this grading after this week.

If you cannot attend the grading we are unfortunately unable to offer an alternative and the next grading will be March as normal.

All monies already received will be carried forward to the next grading.

If you are unable to attend please let your instructor know who can arrange a refund of the fee alternatively the money can be held against the next grading in March.

We apologise for the inconvenience and we understand the new date may not be suitable for everyone but we were limited with booking options.

Thanks for your understanding and practice please !
