Spring Kyu Graduation 2022

Spring Belt Advancements – US Budokai Karate!


Congratulations to everyone who advanced in rank following the April 27, 2022 Kyu Belt Testing!!  The official results are here!

Physical skills are always part of the challenge when advancing in karate but this quarter drew greater attention to our pillars!!

HONOR = Honesty, the first key to a happy life!

What more did we accomplish this quarter? We learned to present ourselves with honor and dignity and the importance of not looking sloppy – belt tie challenge!!

It is our goal to help our families create a happier, less stressed, home life – how did we do this … We brushed our teeth without a fuss, got our homework done without complaint, put our devices away without being asked twice, improved our table manners and went to bed and stayed in bed & MORE!!! When we keep the promises we make, everyone is happier!!!

Here are some other strategies for teaching Honor/Honesty in the home with your child: Psychology Today – Teaching Your Kids to be Honest

GET READY for Pillar #2 – D I S C I P L I N E!!!!
