clean suit and belt, weapons, sparring equipment. You should have completed your knowledge test and fitness assessment before grading day. The knowledge test can be found on the Documents and Information page of this website - print off the sections up
to and including the grade you are testing for, complete them and hand them to your instructor. Fitness tests will be completed in class with your instructor.
Arrive around 15 minutes
before your grading to allow time to settle in. Please don't arrive too early. We have to set up the room and you will have more time to get nervous. You may bring a drink for after the grading, but no food or drink should be consumed in the hall - and that
includes spectators. Please do not bring your hot drinks into the grading hall; you will be asked to remove them.
