Build Up for First Mini Kids Grading of 2015
We're getting ready for the first Mini Kids grading for the year! This grading is for kids who are using the Mini Kids Handbook (but excludes kids who are grading for FIRST YELLOW or YELLOW BELT - these are national gradings conducted at Colour Belt gradings).
Instructors will be assessing your child's readiness to grade during class from this week up until the cut-off date for grading forms to be received by the office. One of the requirements for grading is for homework to be signed off by their instructor - so please make sure your child completes their homework page for their next rank and BRING IT TO CLASS to be signed off well in advance of the cut-off date.
Attitude and attendance are also factors taken into consideration alongside Taekwon-Do techniques and skills so make sure you let your instructor know if you have an exceptional reason for not being at class. If you have questions about your child's progress please direct to your child's instructor.
Mini Kids Grading
Who For: Children on the Mini Kids syllabus (who use the A4 sized Mini Kids Handbook syllabus) grading for first green, first blue, first red, first black, double yellow or triple yellow stripe (ask your instructor if you are not sure if this is you)

Colour Belts - Your First Grading is Coming Up Soon Too!
