How do we get to the next colour?
There are usually several criteria for reaching the next belt level.
- Satisfactory attendance levels - Be sure to sign the attendance
sheet each class. Attendance 3 times a week is ideal, but if you
can only make it to 2 a week you might be able to squeeze by,
assuming the other criteria for progressing are present.
- You have learned the required katas and basics up to your belt
level - Sensei will usually review each student's katas prior
to a grading. See the McMaster
Goju Ryu student manual for more details regarding kata requirements.
- Sensei's approval - Sensei has the final say for anything that
happens in the McMaster dojo, including who is ready to enter
the next grading.
- Successful completion of the grading - this means a passing
grade and Sensei's approval.
