Gradings

Students earn their next belt level by demonstrating their skills at gradings. ATI gradings are held every 3 months at the ATI Martial Arts headquarters in Malaga. In order to be eligible to graduate, a student must FIRST earn the Skill Stripes that are required for the current syllabus. 

Skill Stripes are represented as coloured tags on the student’s belt. These are only awarded by instructors when a student has reached a reasonable level of competence in that area. Each syllabus requires different Skill Stripes. 

Skills are represented by the following colours:

BOARD BREAKING

KICKING

SELF-DEFENCE

DRAGON RULES

BOXING

How to tie your child's belt

When facing your child: Left over right, then right over left!

Watch our video tutorial below.

Commands, Terms & Tips

"Cha Ryuht" (cha-ri-yut): Attention

Face the instructor, stand tall with your back straight, hands closed by your side and feet together

"Kyung Nae" (kyoong-nay): Bow

Keep your hands closed by your side and feet together.
Students must bow at the entrance (facing inside) when entering and exiting class.

"AT EASE"

Students should stop and face the instructor, put their hands behind their back and respond with, “Ma’am yes Ma’am” / “Sir, yes Sir”.

"KIHAP" (kee-up)

A kihap is a yell; a vocal expression of concentrated effort.

"Baro" (bah-row): Return to Starting position

By default, this is "Junbi" (joon-bee) - the ready stance.

Guarding Stance

By default, the left foot is in front with the body facing slightly to the right. Fists must be up. Sometimes students will be asked to "transform". This is just a mirror of the default stance, with the right foot in front, and body facing to the left.
