Black Belt Uniform

our black belt

Black Belt Uniform
Uniforms are required for continued practice as a black belt and are additional. I will be placing uniform orders on Monday December 12, 2022.
If your child intends to continue practicing as black belt please use the link below and the discount coupon to purchase before 12/12/2022.
Due to the cost of the uniforms in full I do not keep inventory of this product.
Cool Fact: Students typically use their black belt uniform for 2-3 years (they can last longer – this depends on your child’s growth).

important test day info

5 (total) spectators per participant. 

  • Hydration: Please make sure your child is drinking enough water throughout this week (especially Friday and Saturday). This test will be very physically taxing and preparing for hydration issues is very important. Although all candidates will have multiple 5 minute recovery breaks throughout the test, proper hydration can help keep each student reach peak performance throughout the entire morning. 
  • Rest: Please be sure to get plenty of rest the day and  night before the test. I always suggest an organized sleep structure at least 3-4 nights before a large physical performance. 
  • Nutrition: This test is consistently physical, there is little downtime for break once they have begun a test section. Please be sure that your child has had enough to eat the weekend before and has eaten the day of. I would not suggest a large meal within one hour of test time – the easiest way to get sick during this test is over eating or an incorrect food choice. I would additionally avoid fast food the morning of the test. Possibly providing quick snack fuel options (bars, veggies, fruit) during their 5 minute breaks is an excellent idea as well

Please feel free to take as many photos and videos as you would like during the test. 

Capturing footage will not be a distraction to anybody. 

Multiple chairs will be spread throughout the dojo. Families will be grouped together. 

Find an available and open spot and it’s yours!

Black Belt test is not a competitive style sport event. 

Please do not attempt to verbally encourage or gain attention of your child was the test is in progress. 

All students have been prepped well and are expected to demonstrate independence of selected test content with minimal coaching and motivation. 

Multiple 5 min. breaks will be implemented. I highly encourage you to support and cheer them on during the break sections. 


  • Plenty of extra water
  • Clean uniform and belt
  • A small snack (nothing heavy, maybe fruit or sometime of bar)
  • Extra mask – Experience has show that a make replacement is a good idea during break sections. 
  • Towel to wash off face during transitions. 
  • Sparring Gear 

Upon confirmation of a passing test result Sensei will send out an email with promotion dates. 

Please leave time for uniform embroidery. Generally promotions to black belt can come 1 to 1.5 months after the test.
