Examiners are asked, where possible, to provide volunteer students for the practical afternoon session. It would be good to get a mix of students from around the country rather than all from one area. Students will be asked to perform different aspects of a mock black belt test so that examiners can practice using the system and discussion can be facilitated. Students can be any grade from blue belt upwards.
