Answer: New students frequently want to know how long it will take to reach a certain rank. The table below will give some idea of the time/practice commitments required to reach various ranks. As you look over this table, bear in mind that these are minimum requirements. Beyond these requirements, a student must be able to perform all the belt requirements set out in the PNHK Student Manual, and must be able to so with the proper balance, power, concentration, speed and proficiency required for the particular level. In every case, the final decision as to whether a student merits promotion rests with Sensei Puckett. Of all the factors relevant to promotion, technical proficiency and “Ki-mei” are the most important; time is the least important.
