We have a well structured and successful syllabus that guides students through from white belt beginner to their first black belt and beyond. There are regular exams (called 'gradings') to enable continuous progress. Students are guided and encouraged every step of the way. They are able to take their gradings at the club as Sensei Bob Kurzweil is a qualified Grading Officer, officially authorised to supervise karate examinations. Sensei Bob Kurzweil is also the Dan Grading Officer for Shukokai England and is a member of the SSWU International Dan Grading Panel.
