Grading Preparation

Make sure that you learn the theory under the heading of your current kup/belt NOT the belt you are grading for e.g If you are a yellow belt grading to green stripe, please learn the yellow belt theory.

However, make sure to be prepared for 2-3 questions from previous belts as the syllabus is accumulative.

Be ready to demonstrate the techniques learnt for your grade e.g if you have learnt a side kick as a part of your grade syllabus, your grading examiner may ask you demonstrate it to check for correct application, correct tool and correct chamber position.
