Mid-testings occur between the regular cycle and registration is open during the period between Gup testing registration. Both belt testing are for White through Red 3 Stripe w/Gold, but may also include Little Ninjas.

Black Belt Testing & Recerts

Our Dan (Black Belt) testing and Re-certification takes place twice a year in February and August. Once a venue is confirmed, the testing date will be posted on our corporate calendar. Registration opens three weeks prior to the day of the testing and closes few days prior to the test. The last day for registration will be posted below once registration is open.


Our Championship Points Series consists of three tournaments per year, March, June, and October. Check our corporate calendar for dates. Students who compete in all three earn points towards earning our Championship Belt which is awarded after the Fall Tournament to the person with the most points. Registration opens three weeks prior to the date of the tournament.
