The syllabus has been reviewed and updated for use from January 2014.
If you are already above 6th kyu, please remember to check the syllabus for gradings that you have already passed to ensure that you are familiar with any changes that may have been made.
Gradings will be carried out by any two recognised grading officers for grades up to and including 2nd Kyu.
Examinations for the grade of 1st Kyu and above will be carried out by the senior grading panel.
The techniques contained in this syllabus are a basic level requirement only.
Students will be asked to demonstrate additional techniques during the grading.
During the grading students will be assessed on the following:
- Knowledge of technique
- Correctness of technique
- Effectiveness of technique
- Flow and flexibility
- Manner and attitude
IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT STUDENTS
ARE PREPARED FOR THEIR GRADING!
