All students need to attend a Grading or “Group Promotion Test” to move from the current belt to the next belt level.
The Power with Purpose team will assess your ability in your current form and at times, lower forms, speed training and free sparing.
Add to this one step sparing and board breaks for senior belts, as well as demonstrations for instructors and you can begin to see the complex and demanding performance that you need to have to achieve the next level.
There are many criteria for you to master before you’re eligible to attend a grading and there are small milestones along the way for you to complete. Everything comes into play from your attendance and ability to your attitude and co-operation. Everything that can determine whether or not you have the right aptitude and ability for the next level.
Black Belt / Hi-Red Belt Testing
Black Belt and Hi-Red Belts are required to attend the December Grading on the Saturday morning. This is where all necessary paper work and offical Kukkiwon papers will be submitted.
This year will will be running this exam independently of our regular coloured belt testing. In this way we will be able to devote as much time as possible to this most important Grading.
Our primary grading centre is on a Saturday at Shelley Public School. Here we grade all belt groups including Black Belt. Our second centre, Toongabbie west, is for those who find it difficult to make the Saturday test. It is however, only available for white through to blue belts. Hi-Blue and above must attend the Saturday Grading.
