Our grades go from 8th Kyu (white belt) to the top brown belt (1st Kyu). From there the black belt grades go from 1st Dan and upwards.
All Kyu gradings are carried out at the Oasis and usually require a full attendance at classes two times a week for three months beforehand
(though this may be relaxed in some circumstances).
Below is the syllabus for all Kyu gradings. Pop-up explanations of the Japanese phrases will appear if you move the mouse over some of them - otherwise see our
the translations page.
Kata combinations can be seen here (pdf format).
