Konbon wa, students.
There have been a number of important sources of information added to the website. After many requests, I have added a Karate Belt Ranking chart which displays all the different belt colours and names, etc.
But remember, belt colours are not all that important. Practicing Karate is not a race against anyone. Your only goal is to better yourself and challenge yourself to train harder and improve your skills! Remember, those who practiced martial arts centuries ago didn’t even wear belts. It was not considered important.
I have also taken the liberty of adding a page which includes some common Japanese Karate phrases – many of which we use around the dojo. Soon, I will be adding the terminology we use to describe specific techniques, e.g., chudan tsuki (middle punch).
