There are 4 gradings held throughout the year which students can participate in when they have meet the appropriate standards. These are held at the end of each university term and at the end of summer.

Successful students are examined by Grandmaster Loh (9th Dan) to ensure that the highest standards of practice are maintained.

Any dedicated student training regularly throughout their time at the University will have sufficient opportunity to achieve their black belt during a typical 3 year course.
