What you may learn as a Sankyu.
A Sankyu student may practice:
• Seisan (a kata)
• Sankyu kumite (an advanced prearranged fighting exercise performed with a partner)
• Unrestricted free sparring (according to capability, full power and speed)
• Proper breath control is important, supporting the development of power.
At or after the student’s 150th class, but not before 40 Sankyu classes, the student should ask for a review of performance. Upon recommendation, the student may request a formal test for Nikyu.
