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 – Available up to twice per year and consist of a 2 to 3 hour assessment in class time. All members are to attend.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – members are assessed in classes and are awarded stripes on their belts to show progression. Belt Promotions will only take place with visiting Black Belt. All members are to attend.
