The Black Belt
The Black Belt is one of the most easily recognizable symbols on the planet. Almost anywhere you find yourself, people have some notion of what a “Black Belt” is. But with all of this general awareness, there are still widespread misconceptions about what it means to be a Black Belt.
The transition and transformation from being a beginner to becoming a skilled practitioner of anything can be likened to a journey. Martial arts training has the advantage of having a clearly marked path. The progression from White Belt to Black Belt mirrors the journey from beginner to skilled practitioner.
The Path of Mastery
Some skilled practitioners choose to continue on their path and reach ever more refined levels of skill and mastery. The progression from Black Belt to advanced degrees of Black Belt can be likened to the path to mastery.
At the Academy of Modern Martial Arts we offer advanced training and an environment conducive to self refinement and personal mastery.
