South East Area: Red & Black Belt Pre-Gradings (latest new style WHITE DOBOK’s & sparring only)

(These sessions are mandatory for all 2nd Kup & 1st Kup (ie: Red belts) & also for ALL Black belts. Simply pick the dates you are attending & turn up early on the day to get changed in your formal WHITE Dobok and be ready to start on the time noted below. You MUST do at least one or two sessions every 6 months, (ie: at least 1 or 2 during the March/Apr sessions and another 1 or 2 during the Sept/October group of sessions). If you are grading for a black belt you MUST do all of the sessions. (If you are still not sure what/when to attend then check your syllabus in the Resources section of our website and also read the other general note about pre-gradings in this “messages” section of our website).
