◆Promotion Test (every 3 months)

The Promotion test is held every three months. At the test, the students are supposed to show their best in terms of all aspects of our training. The students that applied for the test are graded individually and they will receive the promotion test result sheet. After a week, the results are announced and if the student passed the exam a suitable belt is awarded to the student.

◆Demonstrations

It’s show time! Every year, we participate several kinds of festival as the Demonstration Team "Blue Tigers." The demonstrations are allowed us to introduce our Shidokan spirit and the high level skills to the audience. We get a good round of applause when the black belt teens break the boards and the little ones perform tow Nunchakus with both hands. However, we believe that because we can perfectly synchronize the simple moves and keep the hold position, those eye-catching performances can shine!

 

 

 ◆Karate Camp 

Great chance to discover that “Karate Is Fun!” We teach basic of Karate, Nunchaku, Breaking Board and more! This camp develops your kid’s motivation and concentration. 3 & 1/2hours lesson is long enough to fit each student’s request, too.  

 

We like to give back to the students who help!

◆Karate Seminar

Often times the outside institutions, like school, or college asks us to introduce our karate to their students. During such events we explain Japanese culture and the Martial Arts spirit. Also, we demonstrate Kata, board-breaking and more. The audience can learn some sparing techniques for self-defense. For schools or nonprofit organizations, we happily do the seminar voluntarily, free of charge.
