AGKK GRADINGS are conducted throughout the year. To receive an application for grading a student must train regularly.
A student will attain their black belt with regular and consistent training. A student dedicated to the art, trains at least twice a week. Private lessons will also help. Students are able to monitor their progress and demonstrate their advancing skill level is by training for promotional gradings.
The criteria for belt promotion is not only how a student performs certain Karate techniques, but also their positive mental approach, focus, dedication and attitude are taken into consideration. The first few grading tests are not that difficult, however as a student progresses, grading demands increase and they will need to devote more time to their Karate path. Certificates are recognized worldwide and by the Australian Karate Federation.
A grading passport keeps a record of a student's progress. Official Grading Certificates are presented at the completion of the successful grading.
