Time served requirements between all Dan/Black Belt grades
Please note that when applying for a time served award the applicant must be able to show the relevant number of
years of active training/teaching since their last grade as per the following.
Our time served requirements between each Dan/Black Belt grade are:
1st to 2nd Dan - 2 Years of active service/training awarded by physical grading.
2nd Dan to 3rd Dan - 3 years of active service/training awarded by physical grading or time served based on style.
3rd Dan to 4th Dan - 4 years of active service/training awarded based on time served.
5th Dan will be awarded after 5 years of active service/training awarded based on time served.
5 years of active service/training also applies to grades of 6th, 7th, 8th etc...
(The required years for time served awards may be reduced on a case by case basis, time served awards may be applied for from January 1st of the year due)

Past Time Served Accreditation
In the interest of fairness senior Dan Grade applicants, for 4th Dan and over, may have past time served accredited
towards their next grade. What this means is that if a person served, for example, 6 years from 1st to 2nd Dan through
no fault of their own and then progressed through 3rd and then to 4th Dan. The extra 4 years between 1st and 2nd
may be accredited towards their 5th Dan in that the required time served between 4th Dan and 5th Dan would be
reduced slightly based on past time served.

Please note at least 3 active years must have been served at the current grade and we would require
documented evidence of all previous Dan/Black Belt grade dates to verify applications of this nature.
