How Colored Belt Stripes Work
Here at our school our colored belt student’s progress is kept track of by a striping system. This system allows for instructors to keep track of what a student has learned to a standard and what they still need to learn at their rank. The system also serves as a great motivator for the students themselves. When reading “rank requirements” an explanation of each particular stripe is given.
This page is designed to assist with what students are learning in class. It is not a replacement and although it has all of our curriculum there is no substitute of learning from an instructor. Use this page when you have questions or are reviewing on your own. A few things you should know:
- Colored belt material is broken down into sections. Beginners are white though orange belts. Intermediate ranks are green through purple belts, and Advanced is brown through red. Each rank has basics material, footwork and movement, sparring combos, and self defense. These rotate in SETS within the experience level. So when looking up the material, please note what SET we are on that cycle
- Black belt sparring combos and self defense rotates each cycle as well.
- For colored belt students some of their stripes are different for junior students and teen & adult students. For Juniors and Teens this stripe can be a Character Development stripe. the homework assignment for this stripe is emailed home throughout the cycle and available for download on this page. For adult students these stripes changes each cycle and is based on a particular subject or skill set the staff will teach throughout the cycle. This stripe for the teens & adults varies and is not always readily available below.
