Black Belt Testing

Achieving a Black Belt is a monumental event to be certain! The American Institute of Kenpo provides the opportunity to achieve this goal within all three of our programs based upon age, ability, and maturity within the art of Kenpo. 


For the youngest children, The Kenpo Youth Black Belt Program provides guidance in proper behavior, focus, order of operation analysis, and entry level martial arts.


In addition to exposure to a traditional value base and a positive character development program, the Junior Black Belt levels provide sound basics and martial arts fundamentals for the students in this age group.


The Senior Kenpo Black Belt levels deliver The American Institute of Kenpo's entire Kenpo System. The depth and scope of training (and maturity in rank) sets our Senior Black Belts on the path of permanent refinement, not only of themselves but also the art of Kenpo they are actively training.

Event Information

The American Institute of Kenpo has three black belt tests a year for our Junior and Senior ranks. Senior black belts testing for ranks above 1st degree are only tested in the June Belt Tests. Below are the Black Belt candidates that are eligible for testing this year.
