On January 28, many of I.M.A. Jr. and Sr. students and black belts (from the Honbu Dojo in Louisville, Colorado and other branches) will get together for another black belt testing experience.
After many years of hard work and dedication to the Shotokan style of traditional Japanese karate, we will be rewarding each one of these dedicated karate-ka in achieving the next level of their progress. The testing will start at 8:30am and will last several hours. The youth and adult classes will not be held on this day.
All I.M.A. members and their families are also invited to join us for a Black Belt Extravaganza in the evening at the Honbu Dojo. The celebration is filled with demonstrations, an award ceremony and I.M.A.’s yearly recognition of several athletes.
Don’t miss this once a year celebration!
