Gradings

We are a Black Belt School.

Taking gradings i.e. martial art examinations, is a great way to measure your progress.  There are many things in life you can do, enjoy and improve at, but not gain any recognition for, unless you choose to enter competitions.  Whilst competition can be helpful, you are being compared to other people.  Ever joined a gym, only to become disillusioned after the first three months, as you find that it then becomes boring, or you’re not progressing as fast as you initially were?  Good quality coaching keeps you progressing and encourages you.

We have gradings every 3 months for all students below black belt.  This means that you can get to black belt standard in only 27 months.  In fact, on your first grading, you can go up 2 grades if you know all of your first pattern and can perform it to a good standard.  The Chief Instructor, Master Martin Ace, is not only a very highly graded at martial arts, but is also qualified in coaching and teaching.  He has over 20 years consistent coaching and teaching experience.

Most people automatically respect anyone that has gained a black belt.  They understand that gaining a black belt displays a high level of personal competence, goal setting, long term commitment, self discipline, self control and that is only mentioning some of the mental attributes.

Everyone here wants to see you progress.  Master Ace is an excellent coach and will help you to develop and go up through the ranks.  He want YOU to be a black belt too 🙂
