Here are the results from the 4-23-16 test.  There were mixed results with a lot of half steps for the higher ranks.  If you are not satisfied with your grade, you can do something about it by increasing the intensity of your training and of your overall energy and fighting spirit.  But, overall I was pleased because everyone made at least some progress.

Here are the scores from the Kyu test held 12/5/15.  I thought everyone did well in that they made some progress.  You can click on the image to make it larger and see what your score was and what the comments were.  If you didn't get that next belt or grade just remember that others before you have been in the same situation.  Those who quit got no further, but those who stuck it out and endeavored got to their desired goals.  Dedicate yourself to this next cycle and making sure you achieve your desired results on the next test.

Here are the test result from the 12-6-14 kyu test.  If you click on the image it will become larger and easier to read.  I thought everyone did very well.  Of the 45 testing, 22 made perfect scores, so that is an excellent result.  Furthermore, no one failed.

Some of the students, particularly the younger ones and the higher ranks, only made one half steps.  In a couple of instances this may have resulted in you not getting the next color of belt you were testing for.  If this happened, remember that you are closer now than you were before and if you make a small improvement you will achieve your goals next test.  Endeavor, whether you made the grade you were trying for or whether you were disappointed in your result and you will always come out ahead in Karate.

If you wonder why you made a certain grade compared to others in your class or group, examine what they do that you don't.  Do they train harder or concentrate more or do they attend special outside events like camps and tournaments that give them extra training?  All of these things can make a difference.  Just work hard and stick with it and you will go very far in your study of Karate.
