How long does it take to get a black belt?
It is different for every person. Each martial art has different skills and time-in-rank requirements, in addition to participating in tournaments, demonstrations, and teaching responsibilities. On average, it is possible to achieve a black belt in about 3-4 years, if one attends class frequently and consistently.
I already have rank in martial arts from another school. What should I do?
Generally, we honor rank from other clubs. You are welcome to practice with us. Please be ready to accept and learn our forms and techniques.
