Belt Rank Curriculum & Media Series

Karate offers a systematic method of student development and progress measured by colored belts. All-City Karate's instructors will guide the willing student through the intense training required to achieve the rank of "black belt." When the student has trained and learned properly all the required material by attending class on a regular basis and has demonstrated the proper attitude, skill and rank requirements needed to attain the next level, then the student will receive *at any time* a test notice with all of the required information and testing fee.

Welcome to the audio and video section of our website. Here you will find recent videos or messages shared at All-City Karate. Click the icon of the media source you would like to access for each series topic. The form videos are part of a series - "All Kata of Karate, Japan Karate Association", produced by The Bureau of Technique, J.K.A. These kata video clips are for educational puposes only and are provided courtesy of the JKA. These video's are not intended to teach you the kata, but we hope you find them useful for remembering them .
