The objective of karate is to develop good character, not to achieve high rank. Rank is not intended to be an exact measurement of skill.
With each advance in rank comes a greater level of responsibility and the expectation of more intensive training. New techniques will be practiced and techniques already learned must be demonstrated with increased skill.
New students hold the rank of 10th Kyu and wear a white belt
Kyudan is awarded to the chief instructor and Judan is usually a posthumous rank.
The minimum time requirement noted above is calculated for students who attend all of the instructed classes (two or three times a week, depending on rank). For those who cannot train as frequently, the time needed to prepare for the next exam will be greater.
