Next Grading Day – 29th November 2019

Our next grading day has been confirmed and will be on Friday 29th November 2019!

If you or your child plan to take the next grading, you will need to have your/their grading fee and budo pass in to us by Friday 15th November in order for them to be sent to the WJJF HQ in Liverpool in time. You also need to make sure your/their budo pass is in date prior to sending.

As a reminder, these are our current grading fees:

Juniors (Children’s class) Seniors (Adults class)
  • White to Green belts: £26
  • Blue+White to Brown+White belt: £31
  • Brown Belt: £25*
  • Black+White (1st Dan): £60**
  • White to Green Belts: £31
  • Blue+White to Brown+white belts: £41
  • Brown Belt: £35*
  • Black (1st Dan): £120**

* The grading fee includes the cost of a sew on patch which is a WJJF grading requirement. There is no patch required for the Brown or Black belts so the cost of the patch is removed.

We will also be visited again by Kyōshi Rob Howes, a 7th dan (Scichidan) senior coach in the WJJF and sits on the WJJF board of directors. Kyōshi Howes will be overseeing the gradings alongside Sensei Julia, acting as an outside set of eyes as per the WJJF grading policy.

The gradings will be held during normal class times. As we may have a lot of people to grade, good punctuality will be greatly appreciated.
