Rank Belt Testing

The purpose of a belt test is to assess a practitioner's skills and knowledge, provide a measure of progress through rank advancement, set goals for improvement, offer feedback for learning, manage stress, uphold cultural traditions, and foster commitment and dedication to martial arts training.

Promotion of rank and a new belt is given when a student successfully passes the test.

Eligibility for Belt Promotion

Eligibility for promotion will be based on compliance with the dojo rules and determined by Sensei’s assessment of each student’s experience and training progress. Consideration for belt promotion is based on student’s:

  1. Exceptional attendance and strong work ethics.
  2. Participation in seminars provided by the Dojo.
  3. Exemplary physical skills and a profound understanding of the art.
  4. Outstanding achievements in shiai (tournaments) – excelling in both kata and kumite.

Important: A minimum of 30 hours of in-class training is necessary for each testing cycle, while advanced students must accumulate 60 to 90 hours.
