Promotional Testings

Promotional testings are offered every other month at the main academy, six times a year, and provide students an opportunity to advance in rank. Testing requirements vary by rank becoming progressively harder as students advance. Students demonstrate profienceny in forms, drills, one-step and three-step self defense techniques, sparring, board breaking, knife defense, and black belt defense drills.

Eligibility for testing is based on the recommendation of the student’s primary instructor. Ability to perform requirements, class attendance, and the student’s attitude and character all factor into the instructor’s decision. Rank advancement is determined by a panel of Master Instructors and is based on proficiency in performing the testing requirements and the student’s overall attitude and display of respect.
