Enjoy the Journey, Appreciate the Accomplishment
Rite of Passage
Rank Promotions are a special time for Martial Arts students. It is when you make the step from gaining clarity and capability with all of the material for your rank to demonstrating your capability with some confidence.
We would like to thank you for your hours of practice and commitment to your martial arts training. We think that the Rank Promotion process is naturally a good time to reflect on your progress, not just through the rank you are working on, but on the distance you have come and all of the skills you have learned since you started.
With all of the value and good things gained through your Martial Arts training, we also think that now is a good time to appreciate and thank the various people involved in the many wins you have achieved.
First and foremost, appreciate yourself. Increased confidence and skills are a gift you give to yourself. Your time learning as a student and putting in good repetitions are a large part of what is responsible for your growth. Nice job!
Next, if you have parents or other concerned parties making your Martial Arts training available to you, please be sure to take some time to thank them.
Finally, be sure to thank your instructors, assistants and classmates, because nothing happens in a vacuum and we all help each other on the path.
In this section you will find your name and the name of your fellow students and classmates who have passed their Rank Tests and been promoted to the next belt rank.
If you happen to see them in the hall or in class, be sure to congratulate them on their progress. Just like you, they have made a commitment to the Martial Arts and spent many hours applying themselves.
