A grading is the time where students are able to develop & strengthen their self esteem, self worth and confidence by challenging themselves in front of a group of their peers. This is the time where they are able to showcase their skills and knowledge that they have been developing throughout the term. This is a formal assessment time, which enables us to provide better individual feedback. Allowing us to guide and support them in a more productive and individualised manner, as they keep moving forward on their martial art journey. Gradings are a vital part of student development.
