Kazen Kai Gradings


General Information

At Kazen Kai, we hold gradings 6 times a year to give our students plenty of opportunity to progress through the Kazen Kai belt grading system. Most students take every second grading, so progress 2 to 3 belts a year. The gradings are structured similarly to a normal class, and the students will cover all of the techniques that are listed under their next belt in their syllabus book.
Students will know they are ready to grade when they have been handed the white slip with clear instructions on how to book the grading. Junior students can track their progress by looking at stamps they have achieved in their syllabus books.

What to bring to the grading

For your grading, you will require the following:
- An up to date Kazen Kai Licence. This will provide you with the licence and syllabus books required for the grading.
- The official Kazen Kai uniform. Please talk to your instructor for more information.
- Sparring Equipment. For Blue Belt and above ONLY in Karate, and Yellow Belt above ONLY in Kick Boxing.
