Ranks & Gradings

Scientia-Do training has a rank structure. All of the techniques that you will learn have been classified into a series of ranks based upon difficulty. Students wear different coloured belts with their uniform that identifies their rank.

The general procedure for promotion through the ranks is ...

  • During the course of training your Instructor will teach you all of the techniques in your curriculum. It is essential that you practice these techniques both at class, and at home in your own time.
     

  • After sufficient training, students must attempt and successfully complete a Grading Test. During a grading test you will be required to show “a level of mastery” of your curriculum. You will be required to perform your curriculum in front of an examiner or a grading panel. You need to be able to perform all techniques “on both sides of your body”.
     

  • Students, who show the examiner/panel they have “attained a level of mastery that will allow them to train safely at the next grade”, will be promoted to that new grade. Students who require more time to achieve this level of mastery will remain at their current grade.
