We Normally hold a big all club Grading three times a year - in March, June and December.  We also hold a smaller Grading in September aimed at those who have trained during the summer.  Your Sensei will have information about Grading and will advise you if you are ready to Grade and for which kyu.

Our Next Grading will take place on December 5th and 6th (Saturday and Sunday)
