On what authority can you state this fact? Are you an instructor? What is this resume you speak of? An actual paper document? Why would this be required? By all masters grading the students, do you mean masters in the system, school, or..? What rank is a "master"? How do you test "self-defense"?
Takes 3 years or longer of 3x a week to achieve black belt in Kyuki-do. Each student must build a resume that is inspected before being allow to the participate in the blackbelt exam. During the exam all masters grade the students on forms, self-defense, & weapons. The system incorporates weapons- Bokken, Bo, Nunchaku, & Sai.
I can't speak on behalf of the SD group as I've never seen them at any of our Illinois events.
