Going up for your Black Belt test

All requirements must be met and recorded by Sensei Derrick before a test date will be set approximately six months ahead to give the student time to polish all material and build up stamina for the four to six hour test. The student is responsible for knowing every requirement on every belt test before this one. There are no observers allowed during the Black Belt test. This includes parents.
