Truthfully, the journey to Black Belt is an individual one. Everyone can progress at a different pace. There is no judgement on students for how long it does take. What we can tell you is that it is so worthwhile!

However, the other benefits of striving for Black Belt, like perseverance, never giving up, commitment and self-discipline lead to life-long success.

You’ll find that your Instructors at EMAR Dojo Martial arts Academy are dedicated to helping on your journey to a Black Belt, or any personal goals you may have.

Progressing through the grades can give a student a sense of achievement, and it recognises a certain level of knowledge and competence. The speed at which a student moves through the grades can vary enormously, and is influenced by many factors. With diligent regular training it is technically possible to achieve the status of black belt in about 5 years, (Although for most people it takes a little longer).
