For over 35 years our students have worked hard in developing the skills required to achieve black belt standard. Every black belt student is registered with the JKA HQ in Tokyo, Japan. Each student receives a special rice paper parchment certificate on successfully passing the black belt exam. On obtaining this standard students begin to realise that their karate journey really begins at that stage. Below are the names of the Rising Sun School of Karate who have successfully earned black belt status:


Rokudan - 6th Dan


Godan - 5th Dan


Sandan - 3rd Dan


Nidan - 2nd Dan


Shodan - 1st Dan
