Testing Requirements

Testing Notes:

Testing will be conducted every 3 months, however, be aware that very few students are ready to test every 3 months. Payment is due at the time of the test. Students testing for 8th kyu are required to have been training for 6 months minimum. After that students must attend a minimum of 20 classes and be proficient in the specified skills and kata in order to test for each next rank. Testing is at Sensei’s invitation, it is improper to ask to test.

Children will have intermediate tests for chevrons, which will either catch them up to the adult rank requirements, or be intermediate tests between ranks.
