Traditional Karate Training

Traditional martial arts training refers to training in a martial art that is rooted in the tenets set forth by the original master of the art. As such, traditional martial arts training implies that a student uphold the philosophical principles of the art and practice its techniques in a fashion similar to the founder's or in the style's natural progression.

At each belt level the student must learn a specific number of techniques and be tested on those techniques before he/she can move up to the next level. The time required for a student to advance from one belt level to the next will depend upon the number of times a student attends class in a month as well as the effort each student puts forth in training. For example, the average student attending three times per week could probably attain the rank of yellow belt in approximately three to six months. As the student advances in the ranks however the time in each rank will increase as the technical skills required become more demanding and challenging. Each student will receive a training syllabus to ensure that they know the requirements at each belt level.
