We have a grading every three months.

The Shodokan system is pretty much driven by the gradings especially at the beginning - very much a step by step approach. Sure you practice what everyone else does but there are also defined things you must practice. As you advance the hours that you need between gradings increases but it is entirely possible to go through 4 kyu levels in one year - we have 8.
