pre-grade class helps get those final stripes

Karate Pre-grade class

This class is for children who have 3 stripes on their belt or who are very close to grade and need final stripes. The class is aimed solely at giving students extra practice on the day of the grading.

The class has many benefits. As well as being a refresher on all grade work, it also emphasises on strength, focus and acts as a confidence boost to help shake off any last minute nerves. All very important to achieve a good pass mark.
