JKD Grading – Sat 27th Apr 2019

April 27 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm

JKD Grading – Saturday 27th April 2019

JKD London perceive JKD gradings as an honour rather than a privilege. You must earn your right to grade, as JKD gradings are there to ensure that you can maintain and demonstrate a high standard of knowledge and experience of Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do, so as to preserve and promote JKD to the highest possible standard. If you wish to grade, then please enquire with your JKD Instructor, who will then kindly ask you to fill out a Grading Application Form.

Your JKD Instructor maintains absolute discretion to accept and approve your Grading Application to put you forward for a JKD grading, when s/he is confident that you not only meet, but exceed the required quality standards expected from JKD London students.

Prior to gradings, your JKD Instructor will endeavour to arrange to recap and review your performance and knowledge of the assessment level, and walk you through all the techniques, their names, applications, knowledge, and anything else related to your grading to ensure you are best prepared in advance (subject to availability).  Additonal costs apply for Grading Recaps & Reviews, to cover costs for venue hire, teaching time and overheads such as travel.
