April Promotional Results


The results of the April 14, 2021, promotional have been announced!  Nearly 70 candidates successfully tested and were advanced following promotional examinations Wednesday evening.  Students were put through kihon (basic techniques), katas, self-defense, and sparring requirements.

Promotional is the perfect opportunity to rise to the occasion!  Of note was our Junior White/White Kyu group who performed fantastically.  For some, it was their very first promotional!  Great start new White Kyu’s and Blue’s!

As students move through the ranks, requirements become more difficult.  Green belt students begin to acquire points for their black belt testing.  Katas and self-defenses become more complex.  Using US Budokai resources like the Student Handbook and YouTube, helps students keep up on their requirements of learned material.
