2010 National Exam Results

On May 30, 2010, exams were offered at Shintaido of America’s 2010 National Gasshuku. Examiners were Ito Sensei, Jim Sterling Sensei and Shin Aoki Sensei.
Shintaido examinations provide an opportunity for assessment of our practice by several very senior instructors. Exams are rigorous and challenging, and it is quite common for a practitioner to repeat the same exam several times before advancing to the next level.
We celebrate the commitment and courage of all examinees, who spend long hours in preparation and then demonstrate their form in front of the examiners and the audience.
