KUGB grading rules require a minimum of three months between kyu gradings and a training frequency of at least twice per week on average. The club normally holds 4 grading sessions each year.

We are waiting to set the grading dates for 2021 following the Covid-19 pandemic.

Gradings usually take place at Nottingham Trent University in The Lee Westwood Sports Centre and are preceded by a 1 hr training session for all.

The club’s external grading examiner is former world champion Sensei Frank Brennan 8th Dan the vice chairman of the KUGB. Read his profile on the link below:
