Black Belt Exam
BLACK BELT EXAM - 20th May 2012
After a month of boot camp training, our junior black belt candidates where ready for testing. The two and half hour grading exam was over and the students were presented with their black belts.
Check out the videos below for action high lights.
Congratulations to all seven junior black belts including one senior second Dan grade. The level of excellence that they have achieved is highly commendable and represents strength, dedication, and integrity. Everyone at Hunter Martial Arts is very proud of what they have accomplished.
The black belt grading shows skill and determination from all our students as they are taken through every single technique they have learned since their first grade. A typical black belt test could last anywhere up to three hours - It is the ultimate test for any black belt candidate.
Some of our junior students have been training seven long years from a tender age of four to reach this point, so again a massive congratulations for all the hard work!
Our black belt candidates are also required to write an essay about their life and martial arts and the responsibilities of a black belt, there is no set word count on the essay but it should give examiners a deeper understanding into what been a black belt means to them.
