grading progress


All ​students at LSK Martial Arts are welcome to test themselves in gradings held 4 times a year (2 for senior grades), although these are not mandatory.


Gradings are a true sign of technical skill, fitness, commitment and discipline. Each and every student will overcome their own personal barriers to achieve their grade and the chance for continuous progression through the ranks serves to keep motivation high.

Starting from the first rank of White belt, there is no greater sense of achievement than working through each belt, with every grading becoming more physically and mentally challenging than the last.

Only individuals with the right mindset, attitude and desire are able to successfully make it through the junior belts to earn the right to call themselves a senior grade (purple belt and above). It takes a special kind of person to then achieve the rank of black belt.

At LSK Martial Arts, our aim is to harness and develop your skills and your hard work to help you be the best you can possibly be. We want to work in collaboration with you to ensure you are able to meet and exceed your goals.
