Toe the Line or Stay Behind

Our instructors love to work with children, but they are also clear about limits. We enforce good behavior, and we expect the same at home and in school. Failure to toe the line at home or school will prevent a child from advancing in belt rank.

Hard Work Has Its Rewards

As students progress, the challenges increase. They are rewarded with advancement in rank. Typically, there are belt stripes to earn before earning the next colored belt. These short term goals create a mind-set in our students of setting and obtaining goals outside of class to help them become successful.
