Gradings will be from levels 1 - 4 from 9am - 1:30pm. Please note that on that day, regular classes will not be running.
Grading is a great opportunity to test your skills and challenge yourself outside the format of a regular class setting. You will receive specific feedback from the instructor team to help you progress and take your skills to the next level. Grading is the pathway to move into the intermediate and advanced classes, it may not always be easy, but it is definitely rewarding.
The Grading is structured similarly to a normal class in that you will be paired with another student and asked at random to perform the various techniques you have learnt throughout your training at KMDI. The main difference will be that your Instructor will not demonstrate the technique first, and your skills and ability will be tested by a Grading Committee. The initial phase of Grading will contain technical, physical, and pressure drills with a heavy emphasis on striking and fighting ability - your ability to respond realistically with the appropriate energy and aggression levels will also contribute to your overall performance. The final 15 minutes of the Grading will consist of feedback which will be given in small groups by the Instructor testing you.
