The Grey Belt... What is it?

23rd April 2022

Students training in our regular classes may occasionally see somebody wearing a grey belt, but what does it mean? 

The grey belt has been introduced to recognise students who have previously gained experience in either our own club or other organisations. The belt allows the student to train at their own pace, at a level which they are able, until such time that they feel ready for grading.

Whilst wearing the grey belt, students are able to line up where they feel their current standard matches, for example, if they feel they have knowledge suitable for purple belt, they will line up in the purple belt position. 

A guide to our belt gup levels can be found here

If you have any other questions about the grey belt, please feel free to ask Master Kindred or Master Martin.
