For all serious Martial Arts students, one of your main goals should be earning your Black Belt — but this is not a destination. There’s no end of the road in Martial Arts training. When you achieve the rank of Black Belt, this is only the next step on your journey. Following the path should become a lifelong pursuit for excellence in everything you do.
“Never Depart from the Way of the Martial Arts”
