When a student reaches red belt they are required to attend at least one course per term if they wish to be considered for grading.

Gradings are held at the end of each term. Teachers will give grading forms out to students that are ready to take their next belt in the second half of the term. Students can only grade if advised by their teacher that they are ready.
