Why You Should Get a Black Belt

Everyone knows what a black belt is; it is someone who has practiced a martial art, learned all the fundementals that define that art, developed self-discipline and confidence, and have learned how to apply their years of training to their life outside their training school. Being a black belt is an achievement that stays with someone because it changes them both physichally and mentally. So why don't you have one? Make it happen. At Seung-Ni Martial Arts Academy in Traverse City, we make black belts.

Black belts have trained for years to get their rank. Over this time they've been working out and training through every class. This, of course, has made them stronger and more flexible. Hundreds of kicks and punches and sparring mathces have increased their endurance as well. Those kicks and punches aren't for show, either; nobody wants to just go out and fight with a black belt. Black belts train and know how to defend the body they've worked to improve.

The other thing black belts are known for is their improved character. Black belts have learned patience and discipline over the course of rising through the ranks on their journey. This affects them more than the physical portion of their training; not everyday will call for their martial arts skills but they will always be able to utilize their mind. In a workspace or classroom, black belts will find they are far better than they were before their training.
