****South Manchester Grading: Time Change*****


IMPORTANT MESSAGE for students attempting their first or next grades this Saturday 25th March.

Due to the large amount of students who have been put forward for grading assessment this Saturday we need to split the grading into tow seperate groups.

Students attempting their first full grade of 9th Kyu Orange Belt or 8th Kyu Red Belt will be assessed between 1pm-2.30pm. Please arrive 15-20 minutes early to sign in and warm up.

Students attempting Yellow, Green, Purple, Purple and White, Brown Belt, 2nd Kyu and 1st Kyu will be assessed between 3pm-5.30pm. 

The venue will remain the same:

Life Leisure Houldsworth Village (opposite Broadstone Mill)

Broadstone Road 


Postcode: SK5 7AT. 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and have made this decision based on the health and safety of the students taking part and spectators watching at a safe distance. If you are unable to make the later time, please contact Sensei Rachael via email: and I will see what I can do.
