THE JKA-SKC AUSTRALASIA JUNIOR GRADING SYSTEM
The JKA-SKC Australasia junior grading system consists of 17 levels.
It is designed to suit children of all ages. Younger children are required to complete all 17 levels, while older children (at the discretion of the instructor) may be given the opportunity to attempt 2 levels at one grading.
This system ensures that all junior karate-ka have achieved the required skill and have reached an appropriate age before attempting the black belt exam.
