5th Dan Classing Examination and Recertification Results
As Founder of the Independent Tang Soo Do Association and head instructor of South Hills Karate Academy, I am happy to announce the results of the 5th Dan Classing Examination that took place on March 14th and 16th , 2013. The Independent Tang Soo Do Association's Dan Classing Examination is an event that I am particularly proud of and I am sure that all who participated in this year's Spring event are as well.
The Association's Dan Testing and Recertification is an extensive two day process where our Yu Dan Ja (Black Belt holders) and candidates get together over two days. We train together, learn new material, fight against each other and drill in techniques over four to five hours on day one. On day two, over another 5 hour period, we have our Yu Dan Ja and Candidates present their requirements and demonstrate required technique, hyung, sparring and breaking. The process for Kyo Sa also includes submitting two written essays on rank specific material.
Promotions will be awarded at the start of the 36th Gup Shim Sa on Saturday, May 4th at 9:00am. Please join us for this promotion ceremony.
