Anyone requesting a Dan ranking that is not able to have a live review session must submit a video with the applicant performing all katas required for the requested rank.


After reviewing the video, the promotion board will permit the promotion, or request additional training along with detailed corrections or improvements. The applicant can resubmit the rank request at least six months later.
