Shodan & Nidan Grading Candidates are invited to Senior Class


To keep in line with the opportunity given to all students who have attempted their Black Belts with Alan Campbell Sensei in the past, we would like to invite to senior class, all students who are eligible to attempt their Shodan or Nidan at the Grading on Sunday 17th July 2016.

This is something we have offered to students since we first joined the JKS back in 2014.

The pressure involved with this type of grading is difficult to prepare for, therefore we want to give you the best chance possible of holding your nerve on the day, performing to a good standard and enjoying a successful outcome.

Grading candidates will be taken aside in groups, specifically focusing on Shodan Grading Syllabus for the 1st Kyu’s and Nidan Grading Syllabus for our existing Shodans. This is all you will work on and you will have the help and support of all of our Instructor team and elite students.

This something that will remain free of charge and it is up to you if you would like to take up this opportunity. However should you wish to start training at senior class in the run up to your grading, it must not replace your weekly training sessions. Please understand that this is extra practice with those who will be attempting grading at the same time as you.

Senior Class takes place at Thornleigh Salesian Sports College, Sharples Park, Astley Bridge, Bolton. BL1 6PQ from 8pm-9.30pm.

You are invited to all Monday night sessions starting from this Monday 23rd May with the exception of the Combined Sessions on Monday 13th June and Monday 4th July due to physical space limitations.

I strongly recommend you take advantage of this opportunity as it will put you in a much stronger position than those who have not done this extra practise. We have an excellent pass rate at Red Tiger and we want to keep it. Treat this like you would any exam. You would not be hopeful of a positive result if you had done no revision, so do not put us in the position where we cannot allow you to attempt your grading on the day. You’ve worked too hard for too long, so lets do the job properly.
