About Belt Tests

Karate is an art that promotes continuous learning.  We use different coloured belts to measure milestones in a student's training. 

Belt testing is an important part of goal setting and progression to the next level of learning. Students are strongly encouraged to attend at least one formal grading per year, but grading is not mandatory.  Opportunities for grading will be presented to each student when the minimum in-class requirements have been met.
