Our Belt System

As your training progresses, you will move up in rank via assessment at grading. Gradings are held every three months, you will be invited to attend by your instructor if you have demonstrated adequate development towards your next level. As you progress through the ranking system, the time you wait between grades may increase to ensure you have enough time to develop both physically and mentally, and are ready for the challenge of moving into senior ranks.
