Black Belts

Black Belt Training requirements (ALL Black Belts).

Black Belts are required to attend at least one official T.A.G.B Black Belt Training Session every six months to ensure you meet the laid down requirements to be eligible to grade or take a star grading. These sessions involve a £10.00 training fee payable (in cash) on the door at the registration. Make sure you take your current up to date Licence book, so your attendance at the training session is recorded.

There is also a requirement for All Black Belts aged 16 years and above, to attend a T.A.G.B Tournament/Competition, as described in the letter you received when you passed your Black Belt grading, entitled Black Belt Grading Requirements.

If you are in any doubt then please ask/speak with your instructor (or check the calendar of events)
