Grading Training: Juniors & Seniors 2019


Moving forward into 2019, we will continue to improve the already high standard of Kyudokan students by adding regular monthly grading sessions.

These will divided into two groups within the session, the number of students will be limited, giving those attending special attention  for the relevant grade being taken.

The groups are as follows

  • beginner to green belt
  • blue belt and above

Kyudokan instructors are very aware that students find it difficult sometimes, for whatever reason, to practice at home. Attending these sessions will give you a better chance of achieving your next grade as more time spent on grading work sometimes is not always possible in a normal class or at home.

The sessions will focus on the technical requirements needed for their next grade including, basics, Tachai kata (foot work & stances), kata (form), kumite (sparring) and bunkai (applications of Karate)

Grading training is an extra cost of £12 (maximum 10 places per session)
