For the adult section, the grades have 3 colors of belts: white, brown and black.
For the children's section, in order to provide additional motivation, we have adopted the color system for each of the grades (kyu) issued in the club.
There is one grade change per year (towards the end of April).
The candidate's achievements for the degree are evaluated according to three modules: kihons, katas and kumity. The grade transition also takes into account the assiduity and motivation of the practitioner during the current season.
The exam takes place in front of a jury of black belts.
