Winter Freestyle TaeKwonDo Colour Belt Grading – February 2024
Lockswood Community Centre
Our first Grading of 2024 is for Colour Belts and will be hosted at the Lockswood Community Centre. After a successful trial in 2023, we will be maintaining the structure of having a prep class before the main event. We will also have a White to Yellow Belt Grading time too.
All members must register to be able to Grade. Registration closes on Friday 23rd February at 9:00pm. If you miss this deadline, a £10 per person admin fee will be added to the total cost*.
White to Red Belts will Grade on Saturday 24th February at the Lockswood Community Centre. White to Blue Belts may request to Grade on a different date up to 5 days before or after the main Grading date with a justified reason. This must be confirmed before registering and then noted in the Additional Details Box.
Purple to Red Belt can only Grade at the main event.

Please confirm with your Instructor if they believe you are ready and able to Grade.

Those who successfully achieve a new rank will be presented with their awards in classes from 28th February.
*Admin Fee will not exceed £30
