All about how graduations work at West Coast Martial Arts
This is an epic short term goal where you or your child can earn the next colour belt or patch to show the progress that you’re making with your martial arts programme.Having this goal to work towards, helps you take the small steps needed to make progress, especially during those times when you struggle to learn a specific tactic or technique. The goal helps you to step up and keep persevering.
At West Coast Martial Arts, we use graduations as a
way to help keep you inspired, achieving and build your self-esteem as you see yourself progress.
WHEN & WHERE?

‘ll be able to earn your new belt in your usual lesson during the testing week.
