Below Black Belt Grading Information

At the BCTA, we take the first 9 belt promotion tests seriously and help new students to understand the grading process and the meaning behind their new belt that will ultimately lead them to their Black Belt. Students have to train for a minimum amount of time in order to be eligible to grade. Both Junior and senior grades follow the same process. The minimum times are listed below:
