Black Belt Testing
The Black Belt testing process is an arduous one. First, students must commit themselves to this art and style. They must demonstrate not only martial prowess, but quality of character. They must write an essay about their journey, and they must complete community service or otherwise donate time to a charitable event. They also must be at least 16 years old. Students must be recommended by an Instructor. The Association will review all recommendations and extend an invitation to test. Only after being formally invited to test will students begin the test, which typically lasts 6-8 hours.
