Senpai (black belts/Assistant Instructors)

 

Becoming a black belt is no easy task in our dojo. Not only do you need to display proper technique as well as knowledge of Kata/Basics, but you also need to show the right attributes such as having a good attitude, coming to practice consistently, always trying your best, never giving up, and sharing your knowledge over the years with the other student's as well. We like to emphasize "seek perfection of character." Here are current Senpai's who have been showing just that.
