Program and Belt Information

Bright Stars (5-8yrs)

Each class students receive one yellow tape for indicating good behaviour and attendance. Once they have received 5 yellow tapes they are taken off and replaced with a single blue tape. One blue tape represents 5 classes and good behaviour.

As a white belt once you have received 2 blue tapes you can register for grading. For Yellow Belts it is 3 blue tapes and for all other belts it is a minimum 4 blue tapes.

Bright Stars belt colors: (Solid belt with a white stripe through it) White, Yellow, Green, Blue, Orange, Brown 1, Brown 2 , Red 1, Red 2, Purple.

Super Stars (9-14 yrs)

The Super Stars syllabus is extensive, dynamic and fast paced. Students learn excellent martial arts technique and are expected to learn and understand the philosophy of martial arts. Developing leadership skills is a large part of the junior program.

When the children turn 9 they then enter the next stage of their training. Super Stars have coloured belts with a black stripe and progress through the system to a Junior Black Black: “Black Belt with a white stripe”.

Super Stars Belt Colours: White, Yellow, Green, Blue, Orange, Purple, Brown, Red 1, Red 2 , Black.

As a white belt once you have received 2 blue tapes you can register for grading. For Yellow Belts it is 3 blue tapes and for all other belts it is a minimum 4 blue tapes.

From Super Stars and beyond.

Progression into the adults class is generally on an individual basis. Once a student feels ready, regardless of belt, we will assess them accordingly. Students generally stay in contact with the Super Stars program until 14. They enter the adult program on their current belt level and will have coloured tape attached on their belt as they progress through the adult belts, eventually , working toward Black Belt by the time they are 16.
