There is not a requirement to have your Kihon, Kata or Kumite elements signed off on your training card for this grading. Your instructor will advise if they feel you are eligible to grade. Each lesson you attend is recorded electronically after each class. We are currently developing a member’s online portal which will be live in the next few weeks. This portal will allow members to monitor the amount of classes they have attended, in the meantime please carry on recording your lessons manually.
