Karate by the Sea

TESTING REQUIREMENTS

The requirements listed below are the foundation and standard for reaching the 1st Dan Black Belt. At CMA, we recognize that every student is different. Rest assured, the goal at CMA is to have each student grow in their knowledge of themselves and karate. Colibri has the discretion to adjust the curriculum according to a child's age and physical and learning capabilities. However, by the time a student (under the age of 16) tests for Junior Black Belt, they must have acquired all the knowledge required for the Junior 1st Dan.
