Junior technical knowledge is our future, and there is a need to update them on the latest technical developments.        

Note: Junior 1st kup students who have attended these courses in the past have vastly improved on their preparation for 1st degree black belt promotional tests. Instructors please encourage your junior 1st kups to attend.

An official technical course certificate will be presented on the day of the course, along with course manuals.  The purpose of these courses is to standardize all black belt knowledge, especially in patterns & pre-arrange sparring. Black belt students can attend these courses “regardless” of their taking a promotional test, to increase their knowledge base. The course manuals will include terminology Questions & Answers established at our black belt national tests. Reminder: Attach photo copy of national tech course cert to form A, when applying for black belt test.
