BROWN BELT
 
Second Kyu
The following are the basic 2nd kyu examination requirements of our dojo.
 
The kihon, kata, and kumite listed below are in keeping with the requirements, and standards as set out by Shihan Kenneth Funakoshi, 9th Dan, of the Funakoshi Shotokan Karate Association (FSKA) and these requirements are subject to change at anytime.
 
All students should familiarize themselves with the various requirements for each belt level prior to turning in their grading application. If you are unfamiliar with any of the kihon, kata, or kumite required for your next belt level, you should not attempt to grade, but instead continue to train until you feel comfortable with all of the techniques that are required.
 
Remember
Karate-Do is for a lifetime, it is not a race, and your
personal progress should never be treated as such.
 
 
2nd Kyu Examination Requirements
You will find that the techniques listed below are given first in English and then in Japanese.
 
While commands are often given in both languages Japanese is customarily the "language of the dojo" and as such all students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the Japanese pronunciation of each word and it's corresponding meaning.
 
All of the movements listed below require the student to make a mawate (turn) after finishing their last forward technique, so that they will still be moving forward when returning down the same embusen (line).
 
The student should then make another mawate (turn) when the student has finished all of the required movements and they are back to their starting point, they should then wait for the proper commands, (yame - naote) then stand up and bow before standing in heiko dachi (ready stance).
