Please join us and support our candidates who have been training for many years to achieve this rank. The cost of admission is two canned or dried goods items (non-perishable staples, no glass containers, please) or $2.00 which will be donated to a local food bank.
US Martial Arts Academy, Ltd welcomed four new first degree Black Sashes:
on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017. Each candidate demonstrated the forms learned while working toward the first degree, choreographed and participated in a self-defense skit, gave a speech, and broke five boards.
We collected non-perishable food or $2.00 as our admission fee which will be donated to a local food bank.
Congratulations to Daniel Jensen, Olivia Robinson, and Wes Ruthloff in achieving their first degree Black Sash! Wes tested for his Black Sash in December 2014. Daniel and Olivia tested for their Black Sashes in January 2015.
Training to achieve a first degree Black Sash requires commitment and dedication as it can take 5 to 7 years and sometimes more, to learn the skills required. Students who achieve this goal show outstanding perseverance and good work ethic.
