When applying for your Black Belt / Degree test, the following must be adhered to:

  • Apply for the test, but read the following first –
  • You are required to sit a pre-test under the L.T.S.I. rules (ask your Instructor for the official date).
  • On the pre-test, you will sit the 45 minute written exam. If you pass this, you will do a physical pre-test on the same day.
  • Make sure you have your uniform ready and never be late on the pre-test or actual test.
  • Approx. four weeks after the pre-test, you will attend the official exam and do the physical test (the pre-test should have ironed out any issues).

Good luck from the exam panel
