When you complete your training level, you will be able to go for grading. It is your responsibility to attend regularly to your training.

Kyu Gradings are held every 3 to 4 months. In order to qualify for grading, a minimum of 24 (3 Times/week) training sessions must be attended. Good spirit and attitude must be shown and a suitable improvement in the student’s Karate. 

Kyu gradings are cheap and any member over Sandan or with 15 years of training can, after taking the grading examiners test, grade students.

A recommended grading fee is $ 40. The fee is: $ 14 for the grading examiner, $ 14.00 is sent to the IKD-Australia for Certificates/administration and $ 12 goes to the instructor of the student.

All dan grades are registered in IKD-Headquarters . If you want Karate with an impeccable lineage and a future this is it.
