Grading Information

The Sudbury SKC Grading System

The Sudbury skc club, prepare the student to study Kata , and technique. 
has a grading system that allows all students to proceed through next levels, or grades, signifying their growth and development. Whilst it is not mandatory for students to go through the grading system,we have found it is a great way for both adults and children to have their progress recognized with a new ¦ Color Belt.

What Grading Mean

The coloured belt gradings are like stepping stones on the path to a student’s goal of Black belt. A grading represents that a student has reached a competent level with their current techniques and are ready to move on to learn and develop more advanced techniques and skill-sets.

When a student has completed 5 / 6 Month practice time on a particular belt, and have gained a strong confidence of the technical requirements for their current grade, their Sensei ¦ Teacher ¦ will take them in to attend a the Grading. 
Gradings are held in normaly in Chelmsford or Ipswich once every 5 month.
Students from numerous dojos attend this and grade as a collective group. Students are only tested on the techniques required for their belt grade.a formal presentation will be awarded Grading Certificates and new belt at the Bury St Edmunds SKC
