Looking For a Few Good First-Brown Belts


Black Belt Academy is coming.

I know it is only March but summer is right around the corner and that means Black Belt Academy! Now is the time to really think about what you need to fix:

  • Have you been helping out? Your red card needs to show that you have been taking a leadership role in the Dojo.
  • Have you gone through your notebook? What comments keep coming up?
  • Can you do 90 push-ups and 90 sit-ups? How close are you to 100?
  • What are your weaknesses? If you don’t know, find out now as they will be pushed during academy.

That list might seem daunting but it shouldn’t. Getting this far in your practice took time and you have certainly worked hard to get to first-brown. If you have any doubts about your ability, I suggest you talk with your parents or one of the instructors–after you have gone through your notebook! Ask for help getting ready for Black Belt Academy. What do you think could be holding you back?  Black Belt testing is about your skills but it is also about showing the instructors at Integrity Martial Arts why you have earned a place at the black belt test.

Why do you think you should earn a black belt?
