Frequently Asked Questions 

Why should you read the club newsletter?

Our club newsletter comes out at the beginning of each month. It covers a variety of informative points you should know, such as grading results, seminar dates, grading dates, days the club is closed, and other interesting things which have happened during the month.

What is the importance of keeping your word?

Your word is your bond. If you register for a seminar, tournament, special event, or agree to assist in a class you are expected to keep your word and be there. Arrangements are made upon your word.


How long does it take to earn a black belt?

The time needed to advance from one kyu belt (coloured belt) to another is approximately 6 to 9 months (with the exception of our youngest members). Advancement from Brown to Black takes an average of 12-18 months. The average time required to reach Sho Dan (1st degree black belt) is 3 – 5 years.


If you are in charge of a class and a higher belt comes onto the floor what should you do?

You should finish what you started and then have the class bow to the higher belt that will proceed to instruct the class.
