Recommended Black Belt Curriculum

Dear Black Belt Candidate:

It has been my greatest pleasure to be able to have over 350 students graduate to the level of Black Belt.  And in the last 25 years of doing so, I have learned a great many things about what it takes to become a great Black Belt and to make this moment in your life a very memorable one for you and your family.  I want this day to be a success for you.  Here are a few tips to help you with that:

  1. Your training will require your undivided attention and your maximum energy level in every class.  You should not need instructor motivation for training at your best in class.
  2. Don’t let the Recommended Phase become a hassle: It’s a minimum commitment of 6 months to achieve 1st Degree Black Belt but if it takes 8 or 10 months that OK.  It’s about the journey, not the time it takes to get there.
  3. The instructors are not here to push you to become more committed to Black Belt; they are here to help you review and become prepared for your testing.
  4. You must choose between 2 levels of Black Belt Training.
  • Black Belt: Requires completing the minimum requirements to achieve the Black Belt in the quickest and easiest way possible without necessarily expanding your potential. Requires the minimum required attention and energy level. The Result: A beautiful Black Belt to wear around your waist.
  • Black Belt Excellence: Requires completing the requirements to your highest level possible and taking every moment, as if it is the last moment, you have to train. It means committing yourself to create an unprecedented future and limitless possibilities as a Black Belt -- not only in Martial Arts, but in life.  The Result: A beautiful experience and a memory that will last you forever.

The choice is yours...
"Doing more things right is no substitute for doing the right thing."

Your Black Belt exam is a mirror of your life. Everything in your life is only as important as you make it. There are opportunities everywhere in your life that allow you to make decisions, to take them, or ignore them. There are moments to take advantage of and there are moments to waste, moments to obey all negative thoughts, or to fight them and do the right thing. The right thing is to give your all at any given moment. The right thing is to demonstrate an attitude of respect, honor and indomitable spirit during all practices of Black Belt training or your life.
