Brown 1 to Poom belt candidates will be graded be on Saturday 5 January 2008 at Toa Payoh Sports Hall.
As this is the first time all of them will be graded under a panel of three examiners at a centralized location, we expect some teething problems. We believe that some of which can be alleviated with the cooperation of the coaches.
Coaches can also make it easier for their students to perform at their best if they guide and support them by being present at the grading and making sure that their students
- are well-prepared for the grading,
- know the reporting time,
- have their grading cards and
- have suitable sparring partners arranged for them.
To better prepare your students for the grading, you should encourage them to attend the grading preparation workshop which will be held on 9 December 2007 at 9 am at the National Training Centre.
