How Do I Measure My Progress?

E.S.A. students are entitled to take grading examinations on average every three months.

These gradings are conducted by senior examiners and there is a grading syllabus for juniors and seniors.

Coloured belts are used to denote grades. There are 9 grades, known as Kyu, below black belt, with 9th Kyu, orange belt, being the lowest grade.
