KENSHINKAN MERIT AWARDS
 
 
 
Because there can be relatively long gaps between coloured belt gradings, students also work towards the attainment of Bronze, Silver and Gold medals through the Points System.
 
 
This is designed to reward students in a wide variety of areas, and subsequently covers more aspects of their overall performance than the purely technical skills that are assessed at formal gradings.
 
 
Points can awarded for the following qualities – Effort, Etiquette, Fitness, Knowledge, Teamwork and Technique, as well as a Bonus category for performing well in club races, games and contests.
