Every 3 months you will be eligible to grade, providing you have attended around 2 sessions per week during that time and you are at the required standard. You will perform your current pattern, new pattern, line work and set sparring, as well as being tested on some theoretical knowledge relevant to your grade.
We are graded by members of the National TAGB committee, all Masters at 8th and 9th Degree Black Belt, who provide independent adjudication across the UK. It takes approximately 3 ½ years to attain a black belt, with dedicated and continuous training.
