LKA Students Earn Rank at Kyu Exam

LKA hosted a successful kyu rank examination and training clinic with Sensei Takayuki Mikami at the dojo on September 20. Despite the ongoing pandemic, the clinic was well-attended with participants of all rank levels across Southern Louisiana and Mississippi.

After training concluded, ten brave students from 3 dojos of New Orleans and Baton Rouge took rank examinations. Examinations proceeded as normal, with the exception of wearing face masks. Additionally, the kumite (partner work) portion of the examination was conducted facing a partner at a far distance with no contact. Nevertheless, examinees exhibited strong fighting spirit.
