KUGB Grading Syllabus
KUGB Karateka will be eligible to grade providing they have fulfilled all technical requirements detailed in the KUGB grading syllabus, hold a current KUGB licence and record book and have appropriate permission.
The examiner may ask to see some or all of the Kihon, Kata and Kumite listed in the KUGB Syllabus. Candidates may be required to demonstrate material from previous gradings to ensure overall development – a brown belt for example may be asked to perform a Heian Kata.
Allowance will be made for candidates who are unable to perform certain techniques due to physical or other restrictions.
It must be emphasised that the KUGB Syllabus is intended as a guideline to prepare students for their gradings and that the most important factor is the examinee’s
quality of performance.
