Red through to Purple Belt £20
Brown Belts £25
Black Belts 1st Dan to 3rd Dan £50
All grading’s include a belt & certificate.
The grading’s for under 12 years are designed to develop the student in a progressive
and fair manner recognising the difference between child/teen and adult capabilities
as well as catering for less able bodied students.
During the year there will also be developmental competitions held locally to develop
the students in competition karate, the entry costs to these are kept to a minimum
and any monies made as the profits go into the association funds towards student
development courses etc.
We are also keen as an organization for parents to become involved in the club events,
competitions time keeping, chaperoning etc. More help the merrier. The club is
an open book the head instructor while usually busy teaching is always willing to
discuss student development or any other matters and can be rang or emailed if you
