Black Belt Dan Gradings
1st Dan (Shodan), 2nd Dan (Nidan) & 3rd Dan (Sandan)
Please note that Black belt gradings take place twice a year during the Easter and Summer courses. In order to grade for black belt you will be required to attend and complete one of these course before the grading. It is advisable that anyone wanting to grade should attend one of these courses prior to the one they wish to grade on to have an idea of what is expected of them.
It is also important to remember that all students must request permission to grade in writing from our Chief Instructor, Shihan F. T. Perry.
You must hold a current UKSKO licence in order to grade. You will be covered by the Insurance should an accident occur during practice. Those students who have blue licence books should bring them to the grading. The licence ensures your grades will be nationally and internationally recognised.
