Deshi Program


This advanced training program is designed for highly motivated students who are committed to earning their black belt. Obviously, we can’t guarantee a black belt — that depends entirely on the stu- dent’s sustained effort and attendance. But this program is based on a shared commitment between the student, parents, and instructors. Students are invited to join the Deshi program based on attitude, participation, and attendance. The program includes one curriculum class and one advanced technique class per week, plus elective kumite (sparring) and kobudo (weapons) classes. For our most dedicated, we offer a Premium Deshi program, so students can attend both the kumite and kobudo specialty classes each week.
