As a British Judo Association club we use the BJA grading system to to provide a grading pathway for our members.
Judoka will be invited to club gradings when their coaches decide that they are ready for promotion and will typically be encouraged to grade every 4 to 6 months; This decision is based on attendance, training attitude, improvements in randori and results in contest.
During the grading examination they will be required to pass both a technical ability and a theory knowledge test.
Please remember to bring your BJA record book to club gradings and ensure that your BJA membership is kept in date.
Club gradings are charged at the following rates:
- U8 Sho gradings £5 (belt included)
- Mon gradings, £15 (belt not included)
- Kyu gradings, £20 (belt not included)
