Martial Arts are a journey. It's a road to learn self control, respect, and confidence. Fighting is just one path...
Wearing a Black Belt is a symbol. It means you have completed the first journey as a martial artist. You must display all the knowledge and skills you have learned long the way to earn one.
Many modern day Martial Arts schools give away black belts as if they were just toys. Team Samurais does not believe in this way.
Being invited to test for Black Belt is an honor. It is also something that requires maturity and development. Because of this, Team Samurais will not award this rank to those under 13.
