Black Belt Challenges


The goal of this series is to assist you in your path from first degree black belt to second degree.  The video set contained within this section consists of an introduction followed by 26 individual "challenges".  Each challenge outlines specific goals designed to add depth to your experience of the art form.

This material is meant to serve as supplemental reference material, not a training guide, and is not meant to take the place of direct instruction from a qualified teacher.  Your certified instructor / chief instructor should be kept informed of your progress while you work your way through each challenge.
