Gradings take place roughly every six months. The grading venues, at the moment, are shared between our club here in Penmaenmawr and our sister club in Bradford. In order to take a grading you MUST have a valid Karate Licence and a Gi. Students can only take a grading if their Sensei agrees they have reached the required standard. Fees for the grading are paid on the day. Once a year there is a free course given by Shihan Keiji Tomiyama.
The next grading will take place on Sunday 1st November 2009. It will be held at the Penmaenmawr Community Centre, starting at 12:00 and Shihan Keiji Tomiyama will be giving a course first.
