K500+  Zero to Hero Principle

At K500+, we can take you from White belt to Black Belt and beyond. Our grading syllabus has been tried & tested since 1998, had 4 updates and been featured by WAKO GB and Universal Martial Arts Training for their websites.

Today, our grading syllabus follows the below structure. This is for both Adults and Children respectively. The Junior Syllabus (Childrens, Under 16) has a slightly different format for each belt.

 K500 was founded in 1998 by Marc Edwards & Rick Rosser (then, in the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales) and has been running successfully the past few years in Stratford upon Avon and surrounding areas.

Registered with WAKO GB since the beginning, the club has progressed from a stand alone class to many successful 1:1 and 1:6 small group personal training sessions in Kickboxing and Martial Arts.

We’ve had people obtain their Black Belt, Compete and win championships and smash through their target weight and fitness goals.

There are different time frames for each belt, ie how long each one must be held for before progressing. These time scales can be found in our Club Welcome Pack and Curriculum.

Adult Gradings are usually twice per year, a summer grading and a winter grading.
Dragons Gradings are more frequent due to the aim of instilling confidence and achievements for children’s development.  

On occasion, Private sessions (Personal Training) and Private Gradings can be arranged.
