What is a grading?
At the end of each term, if a student has completed the prerequisites
and received Sensei's approval, they may enter the grading (there
is a nominal fee for entering a grading).
A student is graded on the quality of and effort put into their
basics, kata, sparring and Goju Ryu karate knowledge (written and
oral questions) by black belts from McMaster as well as other local
dojos. If a passing grade is received, and if Sensei concurs with
the passing grade, he will issue the student a new belt and a certificate
with his signature and stamp, before the end of term.
