The brown belt assessments take place every 3 months. Every brown belt is expected to attend the dates have been given ahead of time to allow you to plan for these days.

The journey from brown belt to black belt can be a step learning curve and we want to be able to give the best opportunity to everyone to focus on their goal and train to keep fitness levels up and a chance to go over the current syllabus for the black belt.

It is not possible in lesson time to run through the whole syllabus and the mocks are a great opportunity to keep in touch with the basics and katas that need to be learnt. The mocks are a benefit to all brown belts it enables you to have an extended training session focusing purely on your level keeping black belt excellence in mind in an environment that reflects the level of knowledge required in a pressured environment that you will be expected to strive for to reach black belt. The assessments will be free of charge and only those that are due to grade will have to pay the fee for the grading in the normal way.

Even brown belts that do not have enough stamps to be considered for grading are still expected to come so that we are able to assess their performance and give feedback on the areas that need more focus.
