Grading

Are you ready for the next level? Do you have what it takes?

Our gradings test all our students abilities and are designed to evaluate them in a safe and secure environment.

Due to covid19 restrictions we Grade out junior belts in class throughout the test week and out senior belts on Saturday at our Grading center.

At this point in time we are unable to have spectators attend so, here’s the next best thing.

We live-stream the entire grading via our YouTube channel live from 10am so family and friends can watch from the comfort of their own home. We post the event link closer to the date.

You will be able to see our students strive for their next level in martial arts.  There will be demonstrations in Poomse, paddle & bag work, sparing and board breaks.

 

Please read over the follow rules as they are strict guidelines that we must adhere to.

We thank you for patience and understanding.

Seniour vs Juniour

Senior vs Junior Gradings

To make sure every person gets enough time and space to be fairly Graded we have two different sessions.

Any blue belt and above will be undertaking a senior ranking whilst any belt below blue will be a Junior.

Each grading goes for approximately 90 minutes allowing Matt, Michael and Jason to evaluate the skills, discipline and techniques of their students.

Contact us to find out which Grading is right for you.

Am I ready?

Feeling confident? Mastered the forms and techniques you’ve been practicing for weeks?

It may take years, months or weeks…every person learns at a different pace. At Power with Purpose we encourage our students to go for their grading only when they are confident in their ability and demonstrated the skills necessary to our instructors.

To quote the infamous Bruce Lee, “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

Grading Hall 3

More than just a belt

During class your child is willinging to listen, respecting their fellow students and instructor….at home or school it seems like all of the good behaviour disappears! We believe our students need to demonstrate the discipline required for each belt inside and outside the club.

Our Instructors will only recommend students for grading if they have reflected the maturity necessary to progress to the next rank.

Grand Master Park

Each year Kwan-Jang-Nim “Lion” Park is invited to attend our black belt grading. He has reached the highest level of Taekwondo as a 9th Dan Black Belt.

Grand Master Park is a welcomed guest at our Black Belt gradings. Each Power with Purpose student is recognised by Grand Master Park and receives his WTF Australian Taekwondo Academy certificate.

To this day he continues to encourage a high standard of taekwondo, self-discipline and self-control.
