Testing and Promotions

Ranking in Aikido, as in most Japanese martial arts, adopts a standard Kyu (white belts) and Dan (black belts) ranking system.  Testing is an effective way to gauge your skills and technical proficiency in the art, formalizing your training experience and progress.


For each rank there is a minimum time period, class attendance and technical skill that are essential for testing.  The following will provide you with a guideline for Aikido Kobayashi USA test requirements.  Also, it is important to familiarize yourself with the testing procedure and etiquette before the actual test.
