Kyu Test Requirements

The number of hours and weeks required at each level are counted from the last testing date (or the date the student first began practicing). Students qualify for testing only after both the number of hours and weeks are met.

A record of your practices will be kept at the Dojo. This record will list the date of your last promotion (or the date you started practicing), your current rank, and the number of practice hours and weeks since your last promotion. As you near the minimum hour and week limits required for your next evaluation you should approach Sensei and inquire about that promotion. Sensei will then schedule a time to discuss the exact requirements for that evaluation with you, and to plan necessary practice and review sessions.

Sensei will also give you an evaluation checklist, which will detail the skills that you will be asked to demonstrate at your evaluation. As you progress in rank you will add your own "student selected" arts to this checklist, having an opportunity to show those skills you like the best or feel the most proficient at.

In this way no promotion is ever overlooked or forgotten, nor is any evaluation a surprise. Properly followed this procedure ensures that you will have more than adequate preparation for each test, making that experience more a demonstration of your current knowledge than a experience that you feel you will "fail". Your evaluation is also a chance for you to reaffirm your growing skills in Aikido in front of your fellow students, friends, and family. It is a time to be happy in your success, and visitors are especially encouraged to come to class on evaluation days!
The running record of practices is obtained from the weekly sign-in rosters available at each class. For this reason it is vitally important that you sign in each and every time you attend an Aikido practice. If you forget to sign in at a class, or believe that the information on this running record may be incorrect, be sure to bring it to Sensei's attention immediately.

Guidelines for All Levels

Evaluations consist of the items from the following twelve elements. While specific arts, kata, and exercises are particular at each level a student may also be asked to demonstrate any (or all) of the requirements from a prior level during their test. In this way Aikido is viewed as a cumulative process, not simply a procedure of studying for a single test. The twelve elements are:

-Specific Aikido arts at each level
-Instructor selected arts from any of the prior levels
-Student selected arts
-Demonstration of Ukemi (safe rolling and falling)
-Jo and Bokken Kata (specific Kata required at particular levels)
-Ryokata Tori Exercise (number of repetitions by level)
-Rondori Exercise (number of persons and repetitions by level)
-Blunt Object, Tanto, Jo, and Tachi Tori (number and type by level)
-Teaching Skit (Ikkyu and above only)
-Ki Tests (including Aiki Taisos and Kokyu Dosa Exercise)
-Selected arts from Swari Waza (both attacker and defender kneeling) and   Hanmi Handachi (attacker standing, defender kneeling)
-Appreciation of Aikido Philosophy

Specific guidelines for each level are given on the following pages. The numbers next to each set of items on these pages correspond to the twelve categories listed above. Students should be aware that these lists are for practice and training purposes only. Since each individual's abilities, personality, and desires from training vary it is only natural that each individual's evaluation may likewise vary. These pages are only intended to provide a listing of what abilities and knowledge are typically mastered at each level. It is between each individual student and Sensei to determine what that student's particular evaluation for any given rank will consist of and how (and when) it will be conducted.
Note: All arts are to be demonstrated (if possible) both Irimi and Tenkan. All Kata are to be demonstrated (if possible) from both left and right sides.
