Under Black Belt Testing Process

Scroll down for testing booking links

Club testings/gradings take place every quarter and provide an opportunity for all students to demonstrate what they have learnt in class.

All testings are for White to Brown Belts are two hours, even the youngest members, and the aim is to work hard, remain spirited and keep focussed for the duration. It is amazing what can be achieved when the mind is willing.

Testings are organised similar to group classes but allow time for individual assessment. Judges make notes on what is known as well as syllabus areas that need more practice.

We encourage all students to test every quarter, as testings are all about giving it a go rather than achieving the next belt.

All students are ready to test if they are ready to do their best (irrespective of what they remember or how long they’ve been training)!

Junior Testing

Each student receives one-to-one feedback with an instructor in class the week after testing. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to listen in.

Progress/attitude are awarded with a stripe/tab on the current belt.

Competency of the syllabus is awarded with a new belt. The more frequently a student trains the faster they will progress.
