We hold a few courses each year, usually on Sundays at Godalming Borough Hall. Dates will be announced by your Sensei and on our Facebook page. All members should try to attend these courses, as they are a great opportunity to meet and train with other members of the organisation and to focus on your syllabus. Keep watching our Facebook page here.


Rules for courses and gradings

You must have an up to date license in order to attend any course and these licenses must also be produced for every grading. If you forget to bring your license to your grading, or it is out of date when you arrive, you may be refused grading opportunities.

Senior gradings occur twice a year, usually in early summer and December. Gradings will start after the morning course, exact time TBC, If you would like to grade, please let your Sensei know.
