Little Dragons Grading: this Saturday, 21 November 2015.

Little Dragon

These gradings are aimed at junior students 4-7 years who are not yet ready to grade for their yellow belt with Grandmaster Tan. The Little Dragons grading is a great way to build confidence and celebrate all their hard work. A Tans membership is not required for a Little Dragons grading.
