Kyu and Dan Grade Syllabus

Note: The intermediate grade syllabus is the same as the full grade syllabus. This is designed to give junior students (under 14's) an appropriate amount of time to train and reach the expected standard before achieving the full grade. There are some slight differences in the grading requirements but these are explained in each grading syllabus page.
