Following a club grading details of name, new grade, date of grading and who graded is sent off to the Membership Secretary to put into the Aikikai records by recording in the monthly return clubs send. Remember, also, either to pass details to the Newsletter contact in your club details or send directly to the Aikikai Newsletter editor.

Prepare and present a grading certificate when one is not provided by Hombu. This will be for the Junior grades and the 6th Kyu senior grade. A template is available to Clubs on the Resource site.

The Aikikai grading fees are passed to the Membership Secretary as part of the Club's monthly return.
