Karate Tip & Belt Testing: 

  • We are offering virtual tip and belt testing to allow students to progress during their at-home training. Testing is conducted during virtual private lessons in week 4 of each month. To qualify, students must complete 8 virtual classes (Zoom or Vimeo) and then schedule a private lesson. Your instructor will walk you through a pre-test and will 1) provide feedback for what you need to work on, or  if you are ready, 2) will test you for your tip/belt.
  • Black Belt & Degree Testing is being conducted on the Friday of Testing week. Please contact your head instructor for details and to schedule a pre-test and/or exam date.

Powerful Words Projects: 

  • Karate students are encouraged to complete their monthly Powerful Words Project to earn their stars! Please submit your projects before the end of the month by taking a picture or scanning your attendance card and returning it to your dojo’s location by email (AMA Ravenna-Bryant, AMA Capitol Hill or AMA Ballard). *If you don’t have the correct email address please use our contact us form (you will not be able to attach your file, but we can reply with the correct email address).
