Belt progression for the Lil Dragons is achieved through both attendance and ability. Every weekly class that a Dragon attends they have to be signed-in by a parent or carer, to show an attendance record but also as a means of knowing and checking Lil Dragon numbers in event of an emergency. For every 4 weeks that a Dragon attends they will receive a black stripe on their belt. They progress to the next belt once they have received 4 stripes. The belt is awarded the next class attended after receiving a 4th stripe. There is a certificate given the same time as the belt to recognise their achievement and there is a £10.00 fee for the Belt and certificate.

The belt colours are: White; Yellow; Orange; Red; Green; Blue and then Purple and Brown with a stripe every 8 weeks for these higher belts.

The intention is, whatever the age or finishing Lil Dragon belt colour, by the time a Lil Dragon reaches an age to start in the Juniors class they will have the neccessary full skill-set equivalent to a full Kempo White Belt, as a minimum.

Junior Blue Kempo suit (inc. white belt and patches) - £32.00

Belt advancement to progress through the Kempo belt rankings are achieved by attending and, succesfully, completing the grading exam done at the end of every syllabus term. The gradings are based upon the syllabus techniques taught and learned during that term. All new Junior and Adult students have to complete and pass their Kempo White Belt Stripe grading to achieve the basic Kempo White Belt before they can commence the rolling 2-year syllabus programme of Kempo techniques. It does not matter when in the programme a student  starts with SOS as all will be at the required skill level needed by succesfully achieving a Kempo White Belt to then start on the rolling 2-year syllabus programme. However, their individual starting point may/will be different in the programme to another student that has started at a different time. Irrespective of start point during the programme, all students will have completed the rolling syllabus 2 times before attaining the belt to start on the advanced programme for achieving 1st Dan Black Belt. The belt colours are: White; Yellow; Orange;Red; Green; Blue; Purple Stripe; Purple; Brown Stripe; Brown; Black. It takes 5 years from starting point to achieve 1st Dan Black Belt.

All syllabus and gradings are in conjunction with and run concurrent with the syllabus being taught in the SKA (Scottish Kempo Academy) and all gradings are done in the presence of the SKA Chief Coaches at the same times and venues as SKA gradings with all grading fees payable to the SKA at the SKA fees.
