Students at all Family Karate Schools have many goals they can set for themselves. We encourage setting and achieving goals to nurture character-building traits such as confidence, self-esteem, discipline, pride, motivation, respect, perseverance and the willpower needed to survive in today's world!!!
Students receive a FREE student manual which lists the requirements for all belt levels from White to Black. Students are scheduled for a grading when they have completed the requirements for their current level. Being promoted through the ranks is an incredible confidence booster!!!
Students receive stripes on their belts for attendance and for proficiency in the performance of their belt level Kata (pre-arranged set of moves against imaginary opponents). This gives students more short term goals to strive for.
Stripes denote rank within the particular belt colour. Being promoted from belt to belt can seem like an eternity (especially for children) and stripes are a great way to motivate students to keep training!!!
Perfect Attendance: On the last class of each month students are recognized for perfect attendance. They are applauded by the whole class which is an incredible confidence booster - we stress the importance of attending class on a regular basis and this is our way of rewarding students for their perseverance!!
Best Attendance for the Year: This certificate is also awarded at each Family Karate School. Attendance is simply added up for the year and the student with the highest attendance record receives the award.
F.K.S.A. Best Overall Attendance: This award is given to one student of the Family Karate Schools Association for best overall attendance from all schools.

- punches the hardest - kiai's the loudest and always gives 110%.

the way but if you keep training hard, you will get there - I guarantee it!!!!
