So Many Stripes!
Posted: August 30, 2017
Have you ever seen those planes that had marks on the side for each plane they shot down? Or warriors who kept different tallies of their victories? That's how I like to think of the belt stripes we have at ATA Excellence Martial Arts. Belt stripes are a way for our students to visually see their progress toward their next belt. Each belt has a series of stripes that are required to qualify to test for the next belt.
In this article we'll lay out each of the stripes and what they are given for. These stripes fall into two categories: rank stripes and life skills stripes. All of the rank stripes are black and the life skills stripes are colored. These life skills stripes are only required for our ATA Tiger and Karate for Kid students.
I'm going to list out these stripes in the order we aim for our students to acheive them.
