Congratulations to the 66 candidates who successfully passed kyu promotionals on July 18 and July 27 2018! Kyu ranks are colored belt students who are progressing their way to black belt. At US Budokai we have 12 ranks to black belt: White, White Kyu, Blue, Blue Kyu, Yellow, Yellow Kyu, Green, Green Kyu, Brown, Brown Kyu and Advanced Brown Belt. Students progress through the lower ranks, white through yellow kyu every 3 months. Once a student achieves the rank of Green Belt, promotional opportunity occurs every 6 months. The road to black belt typically takes a consistently training student 4 years. The achievement of black belt lasts a lifetime! Osu!
Summer is often a difficult time to stay motivated in your training so this year we are challenging our Junior and Teen Students to train harder and more often by competing in the Warrior Challenge!
Over the Summer attendance will be tracked and prizes awarded for each level accomplished:
10 classes and receive your name on the Warrior Board and a $5 gift certificate to the dojo Pro-Sh0p!
15 classes and receive a FREE Stewart’s Ice Cream and a $10 gift certificate to the dojo Pro-Shop!
20 classes and receive a dojo Kickshield or Focus Pad and a $15 gift certificate to the dojo Pro-Shop!
25 classes and receive a FREE Game of Mini-Golf (for 4) at Pirate’s Hideout and a dojo Wavemaster!
Keep training hard! Osu!
