Am I grading this term?

Hi everyone

Grading invoices were sent on Saturday 30 March. If you received an invoice, you are invited to grade this term.

Because of large numbers grading this term, we had to restructure the grading sessions. Read this post and the invoice email carefully.

  • Grading for those 13 and under is subject to receiving a satisfactory report sheet (Kubz have permission sheets in the back of your Kubz manual);
  • Grading for those with a mini-kids handbook is subject to sighting the completed syllabus book (pictured).

Grading details are on the email that came with the invoice.

  • Kubz grading, Saturday 6 April, 9:00-10:30am, Churchill Park School;
  • All children’s grades under yellow belt, both mini-kids and yellow stripe national gradings, Monday 8 April, 6:00-7:30pm, Churchill Park School;
  • Other national grades, including all national grades above yellow stripe, and adult and teen white belts, Tuesday 9 April, 6:00-8:30pm, Churchill Park School;
  • Partial grades from yellow belt, Wednesday 10 April, 6:00-8:00pm, Glendowie Primary School.

Read the invoice carefully for further details. If you cannot make the date of your scheduled grading, I ask that you rearrange your calendar. I fly to Germany to umpire at the World Championships on Thursday 11 April, so I don’t have room for exceptions.

Ensure you practice your syllabus – all of your syllabus – for grading, and ensure you know the theory for your grade and below.

Remember that an invitation to grade is not a guarantee to pass – that is up to you, and how well you perform at grading.

If you did not receive an invoice, then you are not invited to grade this term. In most cases, this is because you have insufficient sessions since your last grading – keep training. You are improving, and next term it is likely that you’ll be ready!

A handful of students are not invited to grade because they are not trying hard enough in class. Grades are not awarded for turning up. You get better by trying hard, and you must meet the national standard to pass a national grading.

If you have any questions, please ask your class instructor.

Good luck.
