Grading - 4th August

As you are now aware, the grading date has been set as above and as such offers us some time for final preparations.

We are very aware that gradings can be quite daunting and as such wish to offer as much help and guidance as we can. As such we have two extra training sessions on offer each week:

Monday – Abbeywood Community School in Stoke Gifford (Our new dojo with fantastic facilities)
Juniors 7pm – 8pm
14+ and Seniors 8pm – 9.30pm

Sessions are being run by the two main examiners and as such will give a chance to understand exactly what is required. It is extremely advisable for those currently yellow belt and above to attend, although lower grades will be welcome and catered for.

Dan Grades, including those needing ratification, should also attend as it is our intention to offer opportunities for grading within the year!

Thursday – Pill Dojo
6.30pm – 7.30pm

This is for anyone who is required to perform Kata for their grade (currently Green belt and above requires some element of Kata) and will offer an opportunity to brush up on those skills in readiness.

These sessions are of course in addition to your normal training and attendance each week will ensure all parts of the syllabus are covered! Even if you cannot make the grading date, please do try and attend so as to offer support to other club members.

We look forward to seeing you there!
