At the Candleford Wado-Ryu Sport Karate Club, Gradings are taken in front of three instructors. Gradings will be charged for as they are taken, (gradings are not compulsory) and students only take gradings when the instructors and student feel they are ready.

This avoids disapointment of failure for the student, lowers cost and keeps up the standard of Karate.
