THE TRAINING SESSION IS ON.
Black Belt Grading Candidates must arrive in Tenafly no later than 3:15 to pre-test and demonstrate their readiness for grading before the world panel.
On Saturday, February 9 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at the Tenafly Dojo (83 North Summit Street), there will be an American Shukokai Karate Union (ASKU) training session. This training session will be the opportunity for black belt candidates to demonstrate their readiness before the ASKU Leadership Panel. Candidates will be evaluated on their impact, kata, sparring, and other drills, to determine if they are ready for the Kimura Shukokai International (KSI) grading panel. Candidates should be training every Saturday with Shihan Bill Bressaw at his Fords Dojo from 1:30-4:00 pm in order to be eligible for evaluation and potentially grading. Black belt grading will take place after the World Chief Instructors’ Course (WCIC) on March 24 at 4:30 pm.
