Its with great pride that we announce that we will be inducting these three talented individuals into the Black belt ranks at ASDC Martial Arts. They will be testing from July 19th until July 31st. They will have to endure a 48 hour long test where they will live within the Dojo and train consecutively. These men will go through some of the hardest training and testing in this country to earn a Rank that very few ever truly "earn". Most Black-belt testings are several hours long with few hardships to bare. They not only will go through countless trials and tribulations; they too will learn something about themselves. Something that very few people will ever get to experience, nor have any desire to truly be apart of. Learning their limitations, but realizing that theyre are not defined by any preconceived notion they may have of themselves. That their potential is only limited by their will to succeed. After 13 years of being a Dojo we have only promoted 12 people to Shodan (1st Degree Black Belt). Not for lack of students; but by the intimidation of the testing requirements. Having over 10 people quit only months before their own Black-Belt test. So wish these honorable and courageous Men luck on the journey they are about to embark in two weeks time.
