Black Belt Test! October 26, 2013


Hello everyone!

Black Belt testing is one of the most important and exciting events of the dojo year.  This is a special time for the candidates, and all the other students that have trained along side them on the journey.  Nobody passes a black belt test alone – it takes the dedication, spirit, and encouragement of an entire dojo community to make it happen.

This year, our black belt test is on Saturday, October 26th at our Headquarters school in Hillsboro, OR

The general schedule of events is listed here, but subject to change as the day evolves.  Some training and some candidates take more or less time than expected, so please arrive early to make sure you see all the excitement.
