Re: Paying for testing?
In Shodokan UK all gradings are free for kyu and dans.
I can't speak for all of our organisation but at my club all kyu grades are supplied with new belts after grading free of charge, I assume this is the same all over. As are shodans supplied with embroidered black belts.
Dan grades can, of course, send of to Japan to get proper certificates denoting their grades. Around £120 for a sandan, as a rough guide.
Yearly membership is £20/$36. If you are unemployed or a student that fee is halved.
