GRADINGS


NEXT GRADING 03 MAY


What you need to do now:

Red belts and above MUST have a reliable partner. If you are having any problems with this please ask one of the instructors for help. You need to practice with that partner, so don’t leave it until the last minute.

Do NOT miss lessons
All students taking any grade from yellow to purple belt need AT LEAST 20 lessons since their last grading. For all other students AT LEAST 40 lessons. Extra lessons are available for those who train once weekly; £4.00 per lesson, Skipton Academy (Aireville School)
You need an up to date and completed license (with a photo).

On the day of the grading you will need:
Plenty of water, a few healthy snacks, mitts, gum shield (compulsory for all students taking brown belts), a clean ironed gi and your belt.
Cadets under the age of 11 must be accompanied by an adult. Parents may watch the grading as may other relatives, as long as it does not put the student off their exam.
Please do NOT bring small children and babies, it is wholly unsuitable
Gradings take about 2 hours-3 hours depending on a number of students we have. (This includes breaks for the children) Please take that into account if you plan anything else on the same day. It is extremely disappointing for a child to have to go early and miss getting their belt and certificate.
About two weeks before the grading date I will let you know the time you need to arrive. Times are approximate. There are unsupervised practice areas, if you wish to take advantage of this you are welcome to come to the venue early.

PLEASE NOTE: Photography and any kind of recording during the grading are not allowed. Of course, you may take as many photos as you wish of your own child on completion.

On completion of the grading, each successful student will be awarded their updated license, a certificate, and a new belt
