"The MMA BLACK BELT PROGRAM" was introduced to the world with an exclusive "TEACHER WHO COULD DO THAT WHICH HE TEACHES"!
Now "The MMA BLACK BELT PROGRAM" introduces students whose combative abilities raise the bar of the Martial Arts ranking belts they earn, because of what they did to earn them. Their belts don't define them. They give the belts definition.
The MMA BLACK BELT PROGRAM holds in high regard the traditional expectation that all Martial Artists must be a superior combative above all else. Combat ability takes precedence over all regarding rank advancement in The MMA BLACK BELT PROGRAM. I WILL teach you how to defend yourself effectively!
Each belt of The MMA Black Belt Program absorbs its value from the struggles endured, the lessons learned, & the growths gained by the student during the venture to it. Receipt of the belt isn't what makes the student proud. It is the accomplishments & learnings experienced on the path to the belt that bring self satisfaction.
The value of any Martial Arts ranking belt can truly be rated correctly only through a measurement of how much better the one who sought the belt became through the process required to earn that rank.
The integrity of any Martial Arts belt or its system is determined by those who wear it. A cloth Martial Arts black belt can not make a weak, disrespectful person tough, strong, and respected. But a tough, strong, respectable person can put on a cloth Martial Arts white belt and make it appear admirable.
We all can strengthen or weaken that which we encounter. We also can allow things and people to strengthen or weaken us. This is the initial understanding of Self-Mastery. Understanding that we make or take value in that which we choose to get involved in. Be accountable and you will be POWERFUL!
