The pride and satisfaction from gaining a grade cannot be measured. It is an award for all the hard work, discipline and commitment shown

Tenshin Ryu has 6 Kyu grades before Shodan (Black Belt). The Black belt system has a maximum of 10. It is considered that 5th dan and above to be master grades.
Obtaining a Black belt does not mean that any expertise has been gained, only that you have reached a sufficient level for the real training to begin.

Be determined in your resolve to achieve more. Practice, practice, practice. Become familiar with your grading syllabus, dojo etiquette, Kamiza etiquette and be able to demonstrate how to look after an Iaito (Katana) and name all parts of the Iaito
