How often are grading examinations held?
Grading examinations are held 3 times in a year. You require a minimum of 16 attendances (full participation) to be eligible to grade. If you are absent for your grading you will need to wait for the next scheduled grading. You will receive a certificate for each kyu from the head of New Zealand Shito-ryu karate association.
What are the grading requirements?
The grading requirements are practised during class. Step-by-step requirements were designed for each grade. You need to perform every requirement to sit for a black belt grading.
If you are the member, please request the ‘grading sheet’ by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
