The SLSKA recognizes a grading path that consists of 10 Kyu grades and 10 Dan grades. However, an examiner may grant a B grade if in his opinion the examinee is somewhat lacking in his/her technical proficiency.

Three (3) gradings (examinations) are conducted by over-seas based ISKF Certified Instructors annually. These gradings are normally held in:

• March, July and November
