Official Kyu and Dan Grading Syllabus

Our Kyokushin Karate curriculum follows the syllabus taught by Founder of Kyokushinkaikan Sosai Masutatsu Oyama who developed a systematic and realistic fighting syllabus grounded in Budo philosophy and his front line students: Saiko-Shihan Kazuyuki Hasegawa(8th Dan), Shihan Daigo Oishi(8th Dan).
The syllabus provides a learning road map for all students of all grades. Promotions or gradings are held four times a year at which point students who qualify are given the opportunity to attempt a grading.
