WTKA Canada offers Dan Certificates to its members. A member will perform and be evaluated by the National Technical Committee during WTKA Seminars and/or tournaments. Upon successful completion of the Dan Grading, WTKA Canada will issue Dan Certificates for the rank obtained.
A new organization joining WTKA Canada will be required to complete a Technial Standards document that outlines the requirements for each rank from 9th Kyu to 10th Dan Black Belt. The Technical Standards document includes the following:
1. Basics (Kihon)
2. Stances (Dachi)
3. Punches / Strikes (Tsuki / Uchi)
4. Blocks (Uke)
5. Kicks (Geri)
6. I-do Kihon
8. Kihon Kumite
9. Jyu Kumite
The Technical Standards document is used by the National Technical Committee to evaluate any students who wish to attempt a WTKA Canada National Dan Test.
Those who wish to transfer his/her Dan grade from another style or organization should send their Dan grade certificate with a detailed personal history to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have graded with WTKA Canada, you can request a WTKA International Dan Certificate and for your Dan rank to be registered with the WTKA International Karate governing body. The cost is estimated at approximately $150 CDN payable to the WTKA International Secretary.
