Gradings

The Grading process is a long-practiced system in martial arts schools, to show the growth of a student’s training and skill. As you progress you can enter TaeKwonDo, Self Defence Systems and/or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Grading Exams which will test your physical and mental strength, if you demonstrate the required skill for that belt you will move up to the next level or belt.

Freestyle TaeKwonDo – Gradings are formal events conducted at our Hamble location up to 6 times per year. Beginner & Intermediate Level Belts may be able Grade in class. Members must pre-register.

Self Defence Systems – as of 2022, the SDS Programme will adopt the CMAA’s Progressive Grading System. This means that members must complete all areas of the syllabus for their rank to Grade up. This is an ongoing assessment that run throughout class and ranks are then awarded once all areas are passed. Black Belt Gradings are to be arranged with the Senior Instructor once time served has been met and the candidate is deemed ready.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – members are assessed in classes and are awarded stripes on their belts to show progression. These Stripe Assessments happen every 3 to 6 months. Belt Promotions will often take place with visiting BJJ Black Belt. All members are encouraged to attend.

Competitions

TaeKwonDo & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions available throughout the year all across the UK.

Along with several other martial arts schools, students can compete up to three times a year in our local TKD circuit.

The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Competition Circuit has events on a weekly basis. However, members are encouraged to check with Instructors before entering.
