ZEN MARTIAL ARTS BELT SYSTEM
Belts are earned by proving you meet the knowledge and skill requirements at each belt level. After the instructor sees you are ready, we will schedule in a test day where you will demonstrate what you know. At the end of your test, if you pass, you earn your next belt.
These tests and promotions cost no extra fees than the regular class. You will not need to buy the belt, it is a gift from the instructor because you earned it.
When you have a belt, it is asked that you wear it during class. It not only shows your level but is a sign of respect to the instructor and those around you. You are not required to wear a uniform (gi) to every class, but it is required for tests.
