Black belt examination in Athens - November 2021


On November 27, 2021, promotional exams for the Black belt level were held in ¨Yoshukan¨ Greece.
The process lasted four hours of which one hour was a written examination and three hours practice in basic techniques, kata, bunkai, self defense techniques, kumite and fitness.

Examiners were, the official representative of Soke Mabuni and World Shito-ryu Karate-do Federation for our country, George Pelekis, and the world famous teacher, Shihan Con Kassis who watched the examinations via video call.

It should be noted that Sensei Kassis is always present as an examiner but due to the pandemic of Covid 19, he was not able to travel to our country this time. The degree of difficulty was high as ever and the participants gave their best.

Together, the two teachers evaluated the level of the examinees, from which the following were able to successfully qualify for the Black Belt: Nikos Giannopoulos, Electra Peleki and Evripidis Prokopiou.
