First, you get your sword belt. Be careful which way you put your katana on it since there are two ways: the samurai way, and the pirate way. I got it wrong two times and so did many others; just be prepared to say yarr.
The instructors at Samurai Kembu Theater will also help you change into an outfit fit for a samurai warrior.
The staff will help you take pictures, and you even get one picture with your certification. The certification is a nice souvenir of your samurai experience. Note that you can also take pictures with your sensei!
