There are a total of 9 levels in FORCE, White belt to black belt followed by a further 8 Dan levels. We don't do Kata's but instead we do pressure tests that bring reality into our training. We also have a Progressive Grading System in place, for more info on this go to links page and click on Cobra Martial Arts. Junior levels can progress all the way to Junior Black Belt which they carry over to Adults at the age of 16. We don't give belts out lightly in our club which gives our students a real sence of achievment when they do pass their grading. Once a student gets their Black Belt they go onto the national Black Belt register. Students also get the chance to become a PI ( Potential Instructor ) or PCL (Potential Cadet Leader ) where they can then go on to become a training Instructor which is all part of the CMAA Instructor training programme.
