The 2017 IKKU Annual Black Belt Test and Karate Seminar will be hosted at Tora Shin Karate Kai in Social Circle, GA.
The 2017 IKKU Annual Black Belt Test will take place on September 23, 2017. This event will be Hosted by Hanshi Ron Downton of the Tora Shin Karate Kai in Social Circle, GA. Please join us in showing your support for the Black Belts that have put in the sweat and time on the floor for this special day.
Following the test will be an afternoon IKKU Karate Seminar featuring Soke Joseph Ruiz, 10th Dan and Founder of the Kotosu-Ha Shito-Ryu Karate-Do System. Soke always has something good to teach us, so you don’t ever want to miss an opportunity to take part in his clinics. He’ll certainly have something special planned for us during the afternoon session.
There will be an evening dinner and party after the events of the day including a Birthday Celebration for Soke Joseph Ruiz. Come ready to rekindle old friendships and make new ones.
