Testing and Belt Promotions

Skills examination and Belt/Rank Promotions are our way of assessing and acknowledging how much progress each student makes in their Martial Arts journey. Students are judged on how well they demonstrate the curriculum specific to their rank, in addition to how well they present themselves both inside and outside the Academay. We have high expectations of our students on and off the Martial Arts floor and progressing through the Belt Ranks takes time, commitment, dedication, hard work and a very humble attitude.
