Please refer to the Calendar to see the list of available high grade classes for the first 3 months of 2014. These lessons represent the additional qualifying classes for anyone wishing to Dan Grade in April and any student currently 3rd or 2nd Kup wishing to take part in the Kup grade in March.
In order to be considered for grading, students must attend 6 of the 8 available classes up to the 1st March and must also be in attendance for the Pre-grade on the 9th March.
Following the Pre-Grade, we would obviously expect all successful candidates to be in attendance at the remaining classes through March to finalise their preparations for grading.
Please note that due to quite poor sparring at recent gradings, we are also asking that all high grade students also attend fight training classes on Saturday morning twice monthly.
We are aware that some students may not be able to attend the required classes due to work or schooling commitments. We are happy to allow for this providing we receive a letter of confirmation of your circumstances AT THE BEGINNING of the period in which you wish to grade. We must receive, in writing, the reasons behind your inability to attend and we can then arrange an alternative training program for you that fits in around your other commitments. Please be aware that you will still be required to meet the alternative high grade program we arrange for you which will have an increase on your regular training to prepare you for your Dan/1st Kup Grading. Please note that we cannot accept these applications after 25th January 2014 for this period.
