Results from the testing at the JKAAF national camp. The dan and qualification exams were conducted by the JKA instructors: Takayuki Mikami, Yoshiharu Osaka, and Takuya Taniyama. The exam followed the strict JKA HQ standard, so it was a difficult exam. The exam has given a strong message that the academic side of Karate is as important as being able to execute techniques. It became a great driver for everyone to study even harder for the future. Here are the results.
