I was talking to a friend who trains in goju ryu the other day about syllabus for black belt grades between the dan grade and I was interested to see the difference between the syllabus' we both train in (I study wado ryu)
I began to wonder what other groups expect between dan grades. If any one feels like sharing their experiences of dan grade syllabus' I'd be interested to hear about them.
within my original style we are expected to perform more complex kicking techniques, jumping spinning kicks. Chinto and seishan kata, 3 man kumite for 2nd dan
large numbers of multiple kicks (6-8 with out placing foot down etc.) rohai and jion kata, kumite. For 3rd dan
after this they are awarded grades
My original instructor is very much a 3k instructor :(
please share are your dan grade syllabus experiences
