Who and what is a BLACK BELT?

A Black Belt represents achievement through years of dedication and commitment. It symbolizes hard work, self-discipline, and perseverance. Becoming a Black Belt instills a responsibility to one’s self and others. This responsibility is to pass on knowledge, experience, motivation and encouragement to other students without hesitation. A true Black Belt recognizes the fact that there is an infinite amount of knowledge remaining to be discovered.  

“To call one’s self a Black Belt with pride and integrity, one must endeavor to continue their relentless pursuit of personal development and growth, with consistency, sweat, and humility.”
