Our next colour belt grading will be at Cardiff Tae Kwon Do Centre at 3pm on Saturday 1st October. You can download a grading form here: Colour-Belt-Grading-Saturday-1-Oct-2016-Form
For those of you who haven’t visited this venue before, it is located above Iceland on Cowbridge Road East, Canton, Cardiff. (194b Cowbridge Road East). It’s not far from Chapter Arts Centre. The parking areas around the venue are busy on Saturdays so please allow time to find a space and get to the grading!
The other thing to note is that there is extremely limited space inside the venue for those who are not participating so if you are dropping your child off, please be aware of this as there is no space to wait inside – as mentioned, it’s very near to Chapter Arts Centre and centrally located so it’s an ideal opportunity to grab a coffee! As usual, if you’re dropping off your child, we can give you a guide time for how long the grading will take.
As you can see from the grading form, here are some important things to note:
You MUST have a current TAGB licence – please check in advance and if you need to renew, please speak to Mr Schembri asap or message us here
You need to get your grading form and fee (£28) to Mr Schembri no later than 7 days prior to the grading. If you are uncertain if you are ready to grade, then please speak to Mr Schembri.
You MUST wear your full white TAGB suit. The only exception is those children who have come directly from Ninja Kids and are undertaking their first (white belt) grading. They may wear their Ninja Kids uniforms if they wish. After that, i.e. from those taking their yellow stripe upwards, everyone must be in their white TAGB suit.
If it’s your first grading or you just want a reminder, please take a look at our guide to grading which will tell you what to expect and how the whole thing works 🙂
