        UNDERSTANDING OUR RANK STRUCTURE

Junior students are graded with the following differences.

After School club grades are distinguished by having a white belt with a coloured stripe running through the middle of the belt.

This is specifically for students of a very young age or those that attend only our after school clubs which have broken attendance, these students are tutored with an easier formated syllabus.

Where as Junior Grades acquired at the Head Dojo are distinguised by having a coloured belt with a white or coloured stripe running thoughout the length of the belt.

Junior Black Belts have a red stripe running throughout the length of the belt.

 

Senior grades have a plain coloured belt until the brown belt levels from 3rd Kyu upwards.

 

Black Belt levels are distinguished by having a red stripe running around one end of the Black Belt this is called a DAN or Degree.

To achieve a Degree in Yoseikan Karate under the YKA can take from 5 years to

10 years dependant upon the students learning capabilities.
