I understand there are minimum objective standards a prospective Black Belt has to pass before they are awarded their BB. They have katas, teaching hours, knowing techniques, etc…

Are there subjective standards as well? Morals, honor, respectfulness, humility, how they present themselves, sparring skills, how they represent the school, etc…

With subjective standards there generally isn’t a benchmark qualifier that they must attain (otherwise it would not be subjective). Often times though, it’s easy to see if the person is way to one side or the other as far as qualifying.

Please share any subjective standards your school has and how they are enforced.
