Black Belt Rank Requirements:
Note: IUKF has a policy of awarding black belts and certificates to any deserving Uechi-ryu practitioner, whether or not he/she is a member of IUKF. If you are not an IUKF member at the time of your testing, you will be assigned a IUKF number that will be on your IUKF certificate and listed in your database entry and black belt registry. If you choose to become a member in the future, you will retain the IUKF I.D. number listed on your certificate/s and in the IUKF database and Black Belt Registry.
