Important information

Due to the nature of gradings it is not possible to have exact start times. The times below are a rough guide.

Your group may start a bit earlier or later than planned so it’s best to arrive early and be prepared and ready to go when called up.

There is no warm up so leave time to do this for yourself.

If you miss your group then that’s it, you will need to wait until next grading in 3 months time.

If you haven’t provided a photo yet white belts please come early to the grading around 4.45pm and hand one to Mr Shillabeer. I suggest white belts come early and practice in the dojang.

All students that haven’t handed in their red licence book please leave it in the box outside the dojang.

Parents will not be permitted in to watch this time.

  • 5:00pm – white belts
  • 5.30pm – yellow stripes
  • 6:00pm – yellow belts
  • 6.20pm – green stripes
  • 7:00pm – green belts
  • 7.20pm – blue stripes
  • 7.40pm – blue belts

Any questions please ask Mr. Shillabeer.
