COLORED BELTS ONLY. This advanced martial arts for kids
program is a continuation of training after completion of Level
I introduction to the martial arts for children program. Students
signing up for this program must have already achieved their
yellow belt in Goshin Jutsu. After building a basic foundation
of the martial arts in the introduction program, students in the
advanced program are seeking to further their training by learning
different colored belt requirements within the curriculum. The
main emphasis in this program is to focus on the concept of
“constant and never ending improvement”. It is our goal to help
students follow through to the rank of black belt and eventually
advanced study in the adult curriculum. For more information
