Your 1st Grading
We appreciate that it can be quite a long time for White belt students to wait before they can take their first grading to Red belt if they wish to grade at the formal gradings with the other coloured belts.
With this in mind we run a White belt grading every other month.
You will need to wait a minimum of 8 weeks before you can attempt the grading for Red belt .
The grading will be quite informal and relaxed with the emphasis on helping you through the grade.
We will only award you your Red belt if you meet our required standard but will help and demonstrate where improvements can be made if you are not quite ready.
The Instructors will assess you within your classes leading up to the White Belt grading and will present you with an invite to the grading if they feel you are ready.
Parents are unable to stay and watch the grading, however you will be able to watch the grading live via the SESMA Members Facebook page.
On the day of your grading, could you please:
Wear full martial arts outfit
£20 payment for your grading
Your grading invite
Our gradings are recognised by the National Martial Arts Commission – Black Belt Schools UK, NMAC, World Martial Arts Games Commission – WMAGC
