Our next belt exam opportunity will be at the end of September 2023. Keep up your training – the requirements for each belt exam are listed on this website. Please let an instructor know if you plan to test in the future. There’s a $40 fee for taking the promotion exam, which includes the cost of a new belt, if needed.

Advanced Karate Training Sundays for brown and black belt ranks.

We will have advanced kata done indoors each Sunday from 9:00-10:30 am.  Open to brown and black belt ranks only.   We train with our fellow karateka from the JKA Chicago dojo, and it’s always an invigorating work out.

The program starts with heian kata and then we pick more advanced Shotokan kata to learn and refine.   Come, learn and enjoy!
