Our Black Belts-Karate Academy

 
Our Black Belts

The Black Belt is often regarded as a sign of mastery over the martial arts.  The truth is that the Black Belt signifies the passing from apprenticeship to serious student of our Karate.

Our Black Belt students are those who have proven their dedication and ability through years of tests and maintain their training with us.

It's possible for anyone to get a black belt, yet few ever will.  Those who do have honed their physical skills, yet acknowedge that they can do better still; and they continue to research and grow as martial artists.
