Grading Information for:
Adult Candidates | Parents | Instructors/Assistants


Black Belt - Classical Martial Arts Centre - Toronto Central Region

gradingtimes-2016-11


Information for Adult Candidates | REGISTER

Please be sure to arrive 15 minutes early so that you are ready to go.

Grading fee is $55.00 including the HST. ALL grading registrations and payments must be taken care of ONE FULL WEEK before the grading. If this is not done then you will have to wait until the next grading. Just as we Mukso before a Kata, we must prepare before we perform.

In order to be well prepared for your grading, if you wish to attend three classes a week for three weeks, that is fine. It is important to be in class on the day of your grading.

Please ensure that your Gi (uniform) is clean and pressed, that the cuffs and sleeves are tailored (not rolled up), and that the Goju Fist crest and CMAC Diamond crest are sewn on the left lapel perpendicular to the floor (not in line with the Gi collar).

To prepare for oral and written exams, all students should review the Student manual. Look for your Grading exam and reading requirements. Register online at the link below, and submit your written exam by email.  Again please note that this must be done 1 week before the grading.

Bring your safety/sparring equipment. Mouth piece, gloves and boots. If you do not have any please purchase them one week before the grading. Please present your CMAC Membership paper card (Yellow and above). If your CMAC membership is due for renewal, please fill in and submit the renewal form with payment at registration (forms are available here).

From our Student FAQ

Q: What will be expected of me at my first grading?

A: Our grading examinations consist of five main areas for each belt or kyu:

    1. The technical part.
    2. The written examination (which has to be 100% correct).
    3. The oral examination.
    4. Your classroom performance day in and day out.
    5. Your personal development in the philosophical and psychological aspects of Karate-Do / Kobudo.

The technical aspects consist of kihon, kata, kumite and self defense.

The written examination, along with the grading fee, must be handed in a least one hour prior to the grading.

The examination board will have at least two members on it, one of which shall be a head instructor and at least one other black belt.

Other parts of training are also taken into consideration, such as time spent at the belt level, the participant’s age, physical disabilities, and — most important — the attitude of the student towards his or her training, the Dojo, and other students and instructors.

In the last section of your student manual are all the written tests, (yellow to black belt each of which you will have to complete and hand in at the corresponding grading (adults and students over 14 years old). At the time of your grading this exam must be handed in to the person collecting the grading fee and doing the registration.

It is also very important that your gi is clean and that all your crests have been sewn on in their respective spots and that you bring the mandatory safety equipment.

One point – don’t jump the gun white belts! The next class you attend after your grading should still be the white belt class – not the yellow belt class. Do not ask if you have passed! Wait to be awarded your belt.

Any other questions you may have will be happily answered by your Sensei, Senpai or the office staff. GOOD LUCK!

Parents – To register your child for the grading, please complete the Registration and Parent Evaluaton forms online at least ONE FULL WEEK before the grading.

Parents and family are encouraged to come to watch the Grading. You should expect to be at the dojo for approximately 75 minutes.

You may pay for your grading at the dojo, or pay online using the link in the online event calendar.

If your child is successful, and the vast majority are, the results will be posted on the notice board, by the water fountain in time for their next class.

The Belts will be presented in class two weeks after the grading. This allows some time for the adjustments to be made if there was something that needed correcting in the grading. It is also a lesson in patience and to help them understand that the grading is a process, not just the performance on the day.
