JOURNEY TO A BLACK BELT: PART FOUR – ADVANCED STUDENTS (BROWN AND RED BELTS)

“The goal is not the destination but a guiding light to keep us on the path.”

At this point, a Premier Martial Arts student has built the confidence to succeed at any challenge and developed the grit to keep trying when things get tough and we all know life gets tough. Now a minimum of a year and a half into training the stage is set for not only the instructor to put the pressure on, but the student themselves should be developing the self-discipline to strive for their personal best in all that they do both on and off the mats. There is no rush at this point. We do not graduate students to black belt based solely on the amount of time they have been training but rather their drive to continually get better and pursue the very best standards set before them. Along with the pursuit of excellence in the techniques,  discipline, respect, hard work, and community service, should be demonstrated on every level.

In order to be promoted to Black Belt, students MUST expanded and continue perfecting the requirements in the previous ranks and be able to meet the following additional requirements.

Mental Requirements

  • To develop mental toughness that is not easily rattled when presented with a challenge on or off the mats.
  • Develop a sense of awareness of others, how they can help them and lead through example.

Physical Requirements

  • Understand the physical application of the required curriculum in the advanced phase of training.
  • Peak physical shape.
  • Developed increased mental and physical toughness in the application of their training beyond that of their intermediate ranks.
  • Advance sparring training.
  • Developed expertise in the weapons curriculum. Meaning the basic spins and strikes of the bo staff, nunchucks, and kali stick for youth students and basic defenses from a gun, knife and stick threats and attacks for adult students.
