Re: How Should We Conduct a Black Belt Presentation?

We've never been much for ceremony at my dojo -- sensei just says that so-and-so passed, and everyone claps (likewise when certificates arrive, which is usually a long time later). Individual congratulations are a bit different, and are just that: individual. What's probably more important for us is for the person who was just promoted to thank those who helped them get there.
