Brown Belt Tests

There are 3 levels of brown belt to progress through. Your tests will be similar, though progressively harder. Clean up your techniques, and keep good form. How’s your kiba-dachi? Are you stepping properly? Where is your hikite (pull-back) hand on your techniques? Believe it or not, these small points will make a difference in the examiner’s eyes, especially as you get closer to Black Belt.  Execute techniques with speed and power (like you’re an advanced student!)
