Black Belt Pre-Grading: 22 Feb 2020

Pre-grading sessions are open to all GTI students holding a blue belt or above and a valid GTI licence. GTI uniform and sparring kit required. Please bring along your black licence book if you wish to be assessed. Fees are £20 for assessments, or just £5 for the training session.

Pre-Grading Assessments:
Applicants taking their 2nd Dan through 6th Dan gradings must have completed two assessment pre-gradings prior to each grade taken. A minimum time of six months must elapse between each assessment. When assessing patterns, the applicant must perform one of their relevant new dan grade patterns at each assessment (a different one at each assessment).
The date of the pre-grading and the Instructor’s signature will be recorded in your licence book in readiness for your Dan grading. There is no fail or pass result with the assessment as the purpose is to provide guidance to the applicant in preparation for their next dan grading. For Assessments, feedback will be provided via your Instructor to discuss with you.

April 2019 Black Belt Grading

We have the absolute pleasure of announcing the promotion of one of our junior students to the rank of Black Belt! CONGRATULATIONS to Joseph McGhee, 1st Dan!

10-year-old Joe has trained with us since 2014, and has trained especially hard over the last 6 months in preparation for the GTI Black Belt Grading on 14th April. We’re extremely pleased and proud that his hard work and determination have paid off!

Well done, Joe! Great work.
