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 Saturday the 18th of July and Sunday the 19th of July 2020 in our Ranelagh Dojo (rear Cullenswood Park) by appointment.

Grading for all Adults/teens (any grade) and children grading for  5th kyu (purple) and above on Saturday.

Grading for all white belt children (attempting stripes or an Orange belt) to 6th kyu (green belt) on Sunday.

Grading for white belt stripes is €14, all other kyu grades €20.  Please register below.


Absolutely NO Registrations on the day. Please Do Not arrive on the day expecting to be Graded without registration and appointment as to refuse could offend.
