The first Kup grading for 2017 will be held on Monday 13rd March
As usual, this will be by invitation only, so if you're hoping to grade this term, be sure to put the effort in during training.
Students going for Green Tag and above must have the protective equipment for the grading exam.
Only students reaching the required standard will be forward for the examination - invitations will be handed out or emailed 1-2 weeks before the grading date.
Please note for this grading that registration will be on the day.
We don't stop for half term, so classes will still be on this week and next as normal.
And remember, the next grading is only just around the corner, so if you're hoping to be invited, keep training...
British Taekwondo has now announced significant changes to the structure and process of Dan Grading (as Master Elias has been telling us they might).
Dan Gradings from 1st to 3rd Dan will now be enabled at Club level, led and examined by a panel with a 6th Dan Instructor and two 4th Dan Instructors as a minimum (Master Elias and Master Gemma are of course both 7th Dan).
These club gradings will be supplemented by two National Dan Grading sessions led by British Taekwondo. Applications for 4th Dan and above will continue to be examined at the British Taekwondo National Dan Gradings.
Full details are available from British Taekwondo.
We will post news items here, including term schedules, gradings and competitions
