Leadership & Black Belt Training - 04/05/18

Friday 4th May is the date of our next Leadership & Black Belt Training session. This is a monthly class where senior students, Junior Leaders and Instructors get to train with other students of similar rank and focus on black belt syllabus. I like to call it development and maintenance. I say this because ultimately, these sessions serve a dual purpose:

1. They develop senior students and help to prepare them for the black belt grading
2. They support existing black belt students in maintaining the black belt standard

Like every other skill this is an on going process and naturally, in the martial arts there is a general desire to progress and improve. However, as a coloured belt, the rate of progress feels relatively 'fast'
especially during the beginner level (White Belt to Gold Belt Senior). Nearly every new belt brings new techniques, new drills and new concepts.

Fast forward to black belt and that rate of progress seems to decrease. Gradings are less frequent but more importantly, and there are much fewer new techniques and drills - it's more about refinement and enhancement to existing skills rather learning completely new skills. As a resulthe level of skill acquisition is far more subtle.

This is why the forthcoming seminar UK 30th Anniversary Seminar is so important. I can assure you that you will learn numerous pieces of information to help you refine and enhance both your physical performance of the martial art, and also your general understanding of Choi Kwang-Do. Black belts will also have the opportunity train with Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi in a separate session.
