Black Belt Goal Estimation Form
This form is a tool to create an estimation of when you could receive a Black Belt in our system.  You begin working towards Black Belt when you begin the Solid Color Ranks.  Each student is different and should not be compared to others in regards to promotion.  Each student has their own challenges, strengths and weaknesses and are evaluated based on their knowledge and ability to complete the task.  

Parents are reminded that this is a journey, not a goal.  Black Belt Excellence is something you will carry with you your entire life.  This should not be a race to a finish line, but a commitment to a lifelong learning opportunity that has been passed on for generations.

Thank you for your support of our program, which endeavors to improve the world by impacting our community one student at a time.

As our dojo is not a McDojo where you put in your time and earn the belt, or pay your fee and earn the belt, we reserve the right to extend the time at each rank for any reason, including age, ability, fitness goals, focus, behavior in or out of the dojo, attitude, knowledge of material or any other factor that might arise.  We believe in every student we help earn a Black Belt and want to help them be the best that they can be.  This cannot be reached by handing over a belt just because they have paid the tuition and put in the time. 

We are blessed beyond measure to have you as part of our dojo family.  Osu.
Begin Your Journey!

For Black Belt, you will be required to go through at least one 6 month cycle, most people need two 6 month cycles.  Cycles begin in February and August.  So whenever you get your belt, your cycle will begin when the next cycle starts.  For example, If you get your belt in November, you will be eligible to begin the February cycle, and you may receive your Black Belt in August if you make it through that cycle.

HIGH RED BELT
We have a meeting each February and August to outline the requirements of Black Belt.  You can be sure you will need to know all the material you have learned since White Belt.  There will be a lot of hard work, extra fitness and weekly training logs to complete to be able to earn your Black Belt.  It's a process that lets you find your inner strength, focus and power like no other.  Is it hard, yes.  Is it worth it? ABSOLUTELY!
