Dan Examinations

   Every CJKF member must have the permission of his or her dojo instructor to take a dan examination. Students should not test simply because the minimum time allowed between exams is up.


    By requiring dojo instructors’ signatures on dan exam forms, CJKF helps encourage students to discuss their intentions and readiness with their Sensei. CJKF requires that dojo instructors themselves send an email.The dojo instructor should down load the dan exam form and

fill-in the apropriate sections and email to the

Dan Exam Administrator

Dan exam request form

                                   

All examination forms have to be processed by the administrator.


   Yondan and godan examinees must be recommended by CJKF’s committee of technical directors. Out of common courtesy, these examinees must also let their instructors know about their plans to take the exam.


   Be mindful that godan is the top national level of technical responsibility. In some countries, the highest-level instructor is a godan. To grade at this level, CJKF members should know you and you should have national exposure. People who hope to earn a roku dan or higher need to be known not just nationally, but also abroad.


                  When a student approaches an instructor about taking an examination,

              it is the duty of the instructor to ensure he or she is ready for the grading.

       It reflects badly on instructors and senior dojo members when examinees are not ready.


                                   Chief Technical Director for the CJKF,

                  will only conduct kyu and dan examinations for CJKF members.

    Out of fairness to everybody, non-CJKF members are not able to earn JKA qualifications.


          Generally CJKF examination times are one year longer than on the JKA website.

                                  JKA times are based on training 5-6 times a week
