Kickboxing Grading

Kickboxing Grading

Our Next Grading is on Saturday 30th November 2019

Our next Kickboxing Grading’s are on Saturday 30th November 2019. The first grading will be for beginners and Red belts and will start at 9.00am PROMPT.

The second grading will be for Yellow Belts and above and will start at 12.00pm PROMPT.


  • ALL students must be registered BEFORE midnight on Thursday 21st November 2019.
  • Students will not be allowed to join the grading once it has started. There are NO exceptions regarding this. Please try to be at Doncaster Martial Arts Centre at least 15 minutes early. This will give you time to get changed and not be rushed just before grading.
  • If you have previously graded, you MUST wear the belt you attained at you last grading.
  • You MUST wear FULL uniform unless previously agreed with Doncaster Martial Arts Centre – this only happens in exceptional circumstances. If you do not have a full uniform, please order and pay for one with Chris before Wednesday the 13th November – orders after this date cannot be guaranteed to be ready in time.
  • Whilst you have been told that you are eligible to grade, we reserve the right to remove you from the grading, prior to or during the grading, should your conduct fall below the standard required of our students. The instructors decision is final on this.
  • Please make sure you bring a drink with you. (see general notes below)
  • Until told otherwise, students should assume that the grading is still “live” and should follow the instructions of the invigilators.
  • The grading will be “closed”, which means that no parents, friends or family will be allowed to watch the grading. This is something we have introduced upon consultation with previous students, who found it distracting to have people watching – however quiet they tried to be. Seating is available downstairs for those that would like to have a chat whilst the grading is taking place. Tea and coffee is (as always) available.
  • Whilst it is hard to put a finite time on the grading, we expect the first grading to last no longer than 1 1/2 to 2 hours and the second grading to last no longer than 4 hours – this allows the for full range of abilities in our students to be properly assessed. An amount of time (roughly 30 minutes) will be for the invigilators to discuss notes taken during the grading. We will then take each student to one side – on a 1-to-1 basis to discuss how they have done and whether they have passed. This will be done on a grade order – lowest grades to highest grades. We will try our very best to stick to these times, but they should not be taken as gospel and may over run slightly.
  • A presentation of the belts and certificates will by in December at the Christmas Parties.

General Notes

  • Please make sure that you bring plenty of water with you. Our grading’s are very tough and we strongly advise water over energy drinks.
  • Make sure you are drinking water BEFORE the grading – try not to drink gallons, but small amounts in the lead up to the grading, this way your body will absorb the water better.
  • Eating on the day of grading. We advise not eating big meals within 2 hours of your grading. Porridge is an excellent way of eating food that will give you a slow energy release throughout the day. Bannanas are another great food to eat before physical exercise. Try and avoid junk food – and definitely avoid baked beans or sprouts 😉
