The purpose of this programme is essentially threefold:
- To enable senior Brown Belts to develop their understanding of the fundamental principles of karate and the basic techniques, kata and kumite, in preparation for Shodan grading.
- To provide a structure for continued development beyond Shodan.
- To ensure, as a consequence of 1 & 2 above, that CKA Dan grades are equipped with a high level of knowledge and skill base and always have a number of objectives to achieve. This in turn will benefit the CKA generally.
To continue along this path will require personal drive, enthusiasm, self-motivation and perseverance but hopefully bring with it substantial rewards.
