Myth #2: You Can't Earn Your Black Belt In 12 Months

With our unique online program, we have the benefit of our students' ability to train anywhere and anytime, we're not limited by geographic location, class schedules or class sizes. No interruptions to your training for missed classes during vacations, inclement weather, bad traffic or the need to work late. You can train anytime of day or night - whatever fits your schedule!

Furthermore, some of the best known martial artists earned their Black Belt in much less time than is traditionally taught. Joe Lewis, considered to be "The greatest Karate fighter of all time" by Bruce Lee, earned his Black Belt (in Okinawan Karate no less) in 7 months! (reference here) - - So it is absolutely possible for you to reach Black Belt, and be fully qualified to wear that coveted belt, in as little as 12 months! Of course the the time it takes to reach black belt has many factors, but the primary element determining your success is your willingness to practice and train daily.
