How Your Journey to Black Belt Works

  • You train along with our online class videos


    You will learn and train with the same curriculum as our students at one of our PKSA Karate locations. Each class video instruction is taught just like our classes on site. Each online video class is taught by PKSA Karate's founder & president, Master Collins, Jr, 7th degree black belt.

    Each class is intended to be watched and practiced for one week and then you move onto the next week's class. There are additional practice videos provided for required curriculum that you can use after watching each class video for you to review and practice along with.
  • You test for your next belt rank


    Once you have completed all your training requirements for your next belt level, you will be eligible to test for that level. We provide complete, easy to follow instructions for your online testing process which walks you through step by step of filming, uploading, & submission of your belt test for review.

    To help you know what we are looking for in your testing videos, we provide example videos in our Testing Center section of "How to Produce Testing Video". Once you have recorded your testing video and are ready to register and submit it, you should watch "How to Upload Testing Video", which will show you how to successfully make sure we receive the submission. These pages are only accessible once you become a PKSA University student. There is an additional testing fee charge of $70 in addition to your monthly membership subscription that will need to be paid prior to submitting your testing video.

    If you would prefer to test at one of our PKSA locations in person, you will have that option also. Any travel cost you may incur would be your responsibility to cover.
  • Your test is graded by a PKSA certified instructor


    Once you have submitted your test, one of our certified PKSA instructors will review it.  After reviewing, the instructor will provide you with feedback to help you improve as you move forward with your journey to black belt.

    If there are any areas that your instructor feels you need to retest on, he/she will provide you details of what needs to be corrected. Instructions will be provided on how to re-submit those corrected video(s). There is no additional charge to resubmit your first time re-testing video(s).
  • You receive your official PKSA Karate certificate and belt or stripe


    Upon passing your belt test, you will be mailed a PKSA Karate official certificate of your promoted belt level with your belt and/or stripe.

    Your certificate and rank will be recognized the same as students who train at one of our PKSA locations.
