Welcome to the ATMA!

Gup Grading - Saturday 17th September...

Gup Grading is Saturday, 17th September. 
You should have completed your fitness test and written test in advance of grading.
A reminder that there is only one grading venue and that is...
Coventry University Sports Centre, Whitefriars Street,
Coventry CV1 2DS. 
Grading structure and requirements can be found on this website.
Please note...there will be no 10th Gup (Yellow Tag) gradings - these will, in future, be graded at class when ready.
Current provisional times are...
Group 1 - 9th Gup (Yellow Belt) 9am
Group 2 - 8th,7th Gup (Orange Belt&Orange/Green Tag) 9.45am
Group 3 - 6th, 5th,4th Gup (Green, Green 1 & 2 Tag) 11am
Group 4 - 3rd, 2nd,1st Gup (Red, Red 1 & 2 Tag) 1pm
(The grades stated are the grades you are testing for, not the grade you are now)
We will start the grading at 9am. Arrive wearing your suit and belt and bring any equipment with you. Food and drink is not permitted in the grading room. Please arrive with plenty of time to spare and leave time for parking - Whitefriars Street is on street parking and is limited. We suggest Salt Lane or Far Gosford Street car parks; others can be found on Google. If you have any questions, please contact your instructor

New Gup Grading Assessment Sheet...

Your new Gup Grading Assessment sheet - this example covers the first section. I've posted a copy of each sheet for each level on our Facebook ATMA Student Group and in all individual Messenger groups.

Please read.

Those questions at the top also count towards your overall score. 70% required at this level.

Want to be kept up to date...?

If you're a member of ATMA Karate and want to be kept up to date on things, the best place is our private Facebook group, ATMA Students. This is updated on a daily basis and is suitable for children to look at. It's all things ATMA and is monitored - all posts other than the admin posts have to be approved. Just send us a member request.

2022 Calendar of events...

I've added an at-a-glance calendar to the Dates for your Diary page. It's also on the ATMA Student Group on Facebook.

Nice little side kick drill!

Student Manual with links...

We've divided the Student Manual into two parts - one containing the syllabus requirements, with links to the YouTube videos and you can download it free from the Documents and Information page.  The rest of the information about our art and the club - information that you'll need for your written knowledge tests, as well as things you should know and frequently ask about, can be found on the sub pages of the Documents and Information section.

Take a look at the Student Resources page and download the Student Manual document. Try the links and let me know if you have any trouble accessing them.

Hello Karl,

I would recommend Mondays at Ashlawn school at 6pm, or alternatively Thursday at 7pm at Bawnmore School. These classes would be suitable for them.
