Dress Code and Hydration 🥋💦
Full and tidy uniform is a must (trousers, top, belt, and for girls – a plain white t-shirt). Also, bring your protective equipment for higher belt gradings and a BOTTLE OF WATER. If you miss any of these, you will not be graded – NO EXCEPTIONS.
Guests and Conduct 👨👩👦👦
You can bring family members and a friend to watch and support you. But remember, spectators must remain respectful and quiet throughout the grading. Unfortunately, due to loud noises and potential distractions, we cannot accommodate babies in the Dojo.
Capture the Moment! 📷
You’re allowed to take videos and pictures during the grading, without disturbing the students. Sensei Gabi will also be capturing moments to share on social media. If you prefer not to have your child in the photos, please inform Sensei Gabi.
Post-Grading Ceremony 🏆
After grading, Sensei Gabi will award belts and certificates to students who passed. Group and individual photos will be taken, and parents are allowed to snap pictures too.
Exceptions and Emergencies 🚨
For unforeseen circumstances such as sickness or planned holidays, please inform Sensei Gabi. Arrangements will be made for individual gradings. If you do not show up without informing us, you’ll have to wait for the next grading – NO EXCEPTIONS.
