Mock grading

A mock grading session will be held on Saturday 19th February 2020 at Wesley Hall, Crookes, S10 1UD. Times are as follows:

  • 10:00am – White to yellow belts
  • 11:00am – Green stripe to blue belts
  • 12:00pm – Red stripes and above

The mock grading is the best way to see if you are ready to go for the real grading. It is conducted with the same formality and procedure and will help the student best prepare themselves for the real grading two weeks later.

If you cannot make the start time please speak to Mr. Shillabeer and we will try to accommodate you.

Mock Gradings cost £5.00 (payable in advance please). Also, please let Mr. Shillabeer know you are attending.

All students will receive written feedback explaining how you got on and what you need to work on.
