Red Sun Academy

Red Sun Academy

School  of  Martial Arts


To earn your green stripe, you must perform your kata (and all prior katas, if you are not a white belt) without making a mistake.  

Remember, when you test for your green stripe, you must perform the moves absolutely correct the first time, without making a mistake.  There is no second try.  Missing a ki-ai (karate yell) or stepping incorrectly will mean that you must test again.  

The technique does not have to be mastered yet... that's what the red stripe is all about.

Most students do not pass the first time they test for a belt stripe.  Testing is a learning process.  Each time you test, it will be a little easier.  You are learning how to act under pressure.  If you are attacked on the street, you must act under pressure.
