One last thing while you are on this page, we’d like to answer the most common question we get from new students…. “How do I tie my belt?”

Take a look at the video below for the answer.

You’ve probably noticed by now, that every time you come in for a class you need to pull out your progress card and give to your instructor. This serves 2 main purposes: to record your training attendance and to track your progress towards your next grading. Here’s a simple 1 page document to help explain the progress cards – Progress Cards Explained (PDF 251KB). Or, if you’d prefer to see a video walk through, play the video below, which also includes info about the Little Champions progress cards.

And one one more quick lesson, that we think student’s should be asking about, but often don’t, “How do we say the Showa at the end of the class and what’s it all about?”

Check out the long answer to he question, “What’s the Showa all about?”  Or if you just need to practice the pronunciation of the Japanese and get a simplified English translation, take a look at the video below:
