This syllabus is intended as a guide only and to assist with personal training. In a grading, the order of the techniques may be changed as may the combinations themselves.
Any kata and kumite from any previous grading should be expected to be performed, thus ensuring continued practice.
Remember that the attitude, etiquette, manners and, above all, the spirit displayed by the student whilst grading is as important as the techniques and combinations themselves.
