Centralized Black Belt Grading
The day of the Grading was the 31st December 2017 at the Podium Hall, Ministry of Youth and Sports Malaysia Tower. Although the candidates were ready but they were also nervous for this grading session. The grading session was run with 3 stations simultaneously. The use of “Grading Electronic System” was very helpful and facilitated fair scoring.
