The AEGIS Black Belt Graduation 26th March 2011

The Black Belt candidates are busy honing their skills, getting fit and practising their demos for the big day. Over 25 students are testing for the ultimate prize in martial arts BLACK BELT!

Years of study, training and dedication has brought them to the peak of their abilities and they will be duly recognised for their achievements. Plus existing black belts will be doing their ‘mid terms’ where they have to demonstrate that they are maintaining their skill level in order to continue being recognised as an AEGIS black belt. Our black belt testing is one of the UK’s most demanding but as the saying goes ‘you only get out what you put in’

We’d like you to join us as our guest and be witness to the tremendous unleashing of human potential as demonstrated by our students under the watchful eye of their friends, families and colleagues as they step up to the challenge and it is fair to say that their lives will never be the same again.

Black Belt is the badge of honour in martial arts and represents the 5 keys of combat which are Attitude, Expectation, Game plan, Implementation and Study. These 5 life essentials are epitomised by the AEGIS black belt and with the help of our Black Belt Leadership Program our black belts not only build them into their martial arts lives but also their daily lives, you see martial arts done properly is NOT based on just making you into a fighting machine. True black belt is not just about changing your physique either; it’s about taking control of your life, shaping it and creating the best life that you can imagine. Black belt is also NOT just about helping your own life but also the lives of those around you. Think about it, we don’t live our lives in isolation from everyone else. No, we share our lives, our goals and dreams and just as the master martial artist uses his skills to protect others he/she is also expected to proactively assist others to share in the benefits that they themselves have done and achieve what they have done too.

Too often martial arts is portrayed as egotistical, winning at any cost and destroying enemies when the real picture is the defence of others, the aid of others and the development of others. Every good general needs an army of soldiers just as every good instructor needs students. A general isn’t a general without soldiers and an instructor isn’t an instructor without students – likewise the very essence of black belt excellence relies on others in its achievement; those who help us along and those we help along the way.

With this in mind I would like to invite you and your family and friends to witness our black belts in their achievement by clearing your diary for the 26th March, coming along to St Margaret’s Massive Church Hall at 11am and there you’ll get to share in the glorious atmosphere of support, enjoyment and achievement as these dedicated martial artists are awarded their black belts after first demonstrating their skills. I can promise that at the end of the graduation you will be inspired by these people both young and old – you’ll have a whole new view on martial arts and it will be an event that will stay and inspire you for many years to come – So please join us on the day!
