ADVANCED BLACK BELT
By the time a Kenjute student reaches 1st Degree Black Belt, they will have gained substantial experience in fundamentals, control self-defences, maiming self-defences, weapons use, stand-up fighting, ground fighting, forms and much more. The Kenjute Advanced Black Belt Program (Ten Degrees of Black Belt) is a continuation of this training offering additional knowledge and higher skills at every level. This includes learning extra weapons, advanced forms and sparring, and very lethal cutting-edge self-defence skills.
More than just acquiring additional technical knowledge, minimum years of active training between degrees of Black Belt are also mandatory. This ensures that Black Belt students have time to mature and perfect techniques as they progress towards becoming an “Expert” and maybe even someday, a “Master” of Kenjute.
Well above martial arts industry standards, earning a Black Belt in Kenjute is tough, but for those who achieve it, they can count themselves among the best!
