When your child reaches the tan to slime belt level, they may receive a Black Belt club invite. These invitations are at the discretion of the instructors. There are many factors that affect the decision whether a student is ready or not to advance to the Black Belt club. Some, but not all of those are:

1.  The student’s maturity level.

2.  The student’s attendance record in class.

3.  The student’s home practice and dedication.

4.  The student’s ability to follow the Dojo rules.

5.  The student’s ability to get along well with classmates.

6.  The student’s ability to retain techniques and information.

7.  The student’s belt level and time in grade.

8.  The student’s behavior in class.

9.  The Student’s ability to comprehend instructions.

10. The student’s grades in school.

This is not an all inclusive list. There are several other factors involved in choosing students for advancement into the black belt club. Also, once a student is accepted into the black belt club, that privilege can be revoked for cause at any time. Students put a lot of effort into getting into black belt club, but if that effort wanes or problems arise, they may be moved back into the lower classes.
