On February 28th, 2004, examinations were given during Shintaido North East's Kangeiko. Examiners were Minagawa Sensei, and Michael Thompson 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.
