Grading System in Southampton

At Phoenix School Of Martial Arts we offer Gradings every 2 months for Colour Belts and every 4 months for Black Belts. Gradings are conducted at the Hamble Sports Complex for all ranks. Please see your Instructor for more details.

Grading Registration is completed online. Simply fill out the form on this page and then hand in your fee and licence book to your Instructor on or before the date of your grading. 


The Freestyle TaeKwonDo and Self Defence Systems curriculum's operate a Grading system that uses colour belts to show the students progression. 

Freestyle TaeKwonDo Gradings are formal events held at Phoenix SMA's HQ where students perform their required skills to determine whether they are ready to promote to their next rank. In order to to register for Gradings, students must complete Online Registration.

Self Defence Systems Grading are informal and are completed during classes. Students are continually assessed by their Instructors and once they have spent the required time in rank and can demonstrate all requirements, they are promoted to their next rank.
