UMVOTI Aids Centre hosted Karate Grading on Sunday, August 25. A grade is a measure of the level of attainment of a karate student. Each grade is signified by a different coloured belt, starting with the white belt and progressing to black. The purpose of grading is to encourage, promote and improve the art of karate; to allow students to be able to measure their progress in karate; allow instructors to measure progress of their students; to honour those who have attained specified levels of competence; and to constitute a valid measurement on a national and international scale. Grading was performed by Sensei Sibonelo Mkhize, who was assisted by Senpai Lungisani Mabaso.
