Earning your stripes

Tue Jan. 10th 2017 / Club news

A black belt is a white belt that never gave up.

There's nothing magical, no secret trick, to earning your black belt. It's about perseverance - setting yourself a goal and working towards it steadily over several years. What is magical is the feeling you get when you first tie that black belt around your waist knowing how much sweat, how many bruises, bloody noses and strained hamstrings it cost you along the way. The belt is a symbol of that effort. It's not about being able to beat other people up (though you'll certainly learn a fair bit about that), it's ultimately what you learn about yourself.

Start training this month as a future black belt. We'll be there each step of the way to guide you to your goal.

Let us worry about the details

Simply come along to class this January to try it out. No cost. No hassle. If you want to join, sign up for 3 months (from the start of February to the end of April.) We'll give you a uniform normally valued at $80, and by the end of those three months you'll be well on your way to earning your first grade.
