The grading is Saturday 14 Dec at London Nautical School, 09:45 arrival for novices, 12:30 arrival for grades. For those new to jitsu, gradings are not automatic in our style — it is an actual test of what you know, not a rubber stamp, much of it under pressure. You must be nominated for a grading by your instructor, who is satisfied that you can safely navigate a grading and know your stuff to the required standard. You must get yourself on the mat, twice a week, if you want to be ready for it.
Whether you are grading this time around or not, do join us for the glorious Christmas Party, following the grading — drinking, boat races, awards, debauchery. We’ve booked the entire Counting House, 50 Cornhill, London EC3V 3PD from 19.00 – 1am. Nearest tube is bank. Free entry.
