Belts and rewards

As with the majority of world martial arts we reward your hard work and training with regular belt promotions. Generally speaking throughout your training we monitor your progress and will issue a ‘belt promotion’ form when we feel you have achieved the knowledge required for your grade. Only when you achieve Black Belt level and above will you have a full Senior Master panel grading at a separate venue and date/time. Up to that point it is managed in class as you train. Hopefully avoiding any ‘grading/exam nerves’.  Our belts follow most martial arts grading principles: White, Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Purple, Red, Brown and Black.  Each belt’s syllabus is divided into two parts denoted by a black stripe down the length of the belt. For example - White belt will grade for White Senior (black stripe) first. Blue Senior (black strip) would grade for Purple belt, and so on. When you reach Black Belt you can then train towards the Degree or Dan Grades, from 1st up to 9th (Grandmaster). Coloured belt Gradings cost £25 inc Certificate/Belt Black Belt and Dan gradings cost £150 or more depending on grade. * If joining from another style we will always honour that grade (with relevant certificate/grading book proof) and put you automatically to our nearest belt. You cannot grade untill you have ‘caught’ up to that equivalent level.  

Student of the month and other rewards.

We will issue special certificates for outstanding achievement in training, understanding, technique and attendance to anyone we feel has really worked above and beyond what we expect of them. Rewards can also be medals, patches or surprise items related to martial arts or time of year (eg. Easter Eggs etc). Fees. We have a fee structure we believe suits everyones budget.
