Golden Tiger Karate holds monthly rank tests, in which eligible students display their knowledge and ability of the martial arts in front of a panel of black belts, and an audience of family members, friends, and guests. Listed below are the students that tested, along with their promoted rank. Our students continue to excel every single day, and they show that dedication through all of the events and demonstrations that we do. Rank testing is a way to positively reinforce the hard work they have put into the martial arts. A big congratulations for everyone on this list.
