Grading / Assessment Dates 2019

The following dates are for all grades including brown/red belts for whom assessments will be held on the same day as the gradings.

  • Sunday March 24th 2019
  • Sunday June 23rd 2019
  • Sunday September 22nd 2019
  • Sunday December 8th 2019

Times will be confirmed for each belt colour on the grading forms nearer the time.

We are sorry if these dates clash with any plans but we are unable to offer individual gradings.

The gradings will be held at Harpenden Leisure Centre, AL5 2HU.

The brown/red belt assessments take place every 3 months. Every brown/red 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 assessments are a great opportunity to keep in touch with the basics and katas that need to be learnt. The assessments are of benefit to all brown/red belts and enables you to have an extended training session focusing purely on your level. Black belt excellence is kept in mind and 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 who are due to grade will have to pay the fee for the grading in the normal way.

Even brown/red 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.
