Black Belt Tests at Karate Monroe

The journey to Black Belt is not an easy one. Similar to achieving a school degree, that diploma represents the years and hard work that was put in to the success. Achieving Black Belt level is similar, that notable belt color signifies the hard training and skills developed over the last good number of years. Degree or belt, no matter the size and number of the obstacles that were thrown, it is possible to reach the end.

At Choe’s HapKiDo Karate Monroe, we help students reach Black Belt success. On the day of the Black Belt test at Karate Monroe, training from all twelve belt levels (white to red) come together. As each belt level breaks down different techniques to learn, the Black Belt test is a huge performance. The perspective student must demonstrate kicks, strikes, self-defense, rolling, flipping, board breaking, sparring, and weaponry from every level.

While the Black Belt test requires a lot of physical endurance, it also demands attention from the mind. Focus, respect, humility, perseverance, and confidence come together. The two halve, the physical and mental, must work together to perform well.

Students become better leaders of themselves and of their communities when they study martial arts at Karate Monroe. Throughout the training, they learn hands-on the importance of working hard, and seeing all of their work paying off. They understand why having and showing respect are important. They learn to pick themselves up and try again. And finally, they learn more about themselves, which adds to their confidence.

As Karate Monroe is part of a huge sport industry, martial arts is also a field where students develop life long relationships with their martial arts family, which is very special. And through all of the training and growth, the students also have fun.
