Welcome to Black Belt 4 Life, Lexington, South Carolina. We don't just teach martial arts: we teach courtesy, respect, and self-discipline. Students emerge from our classes with an iron will—and the discipline to never surrender, no matter what life throws their way.
Students also emerge as better athletes—no matter what sport they choose to play.
We challenge our students physically: at a pace they can handle. Black Belt 4 Life combines Karate, Krav Maga, Kickboxing and Jiu Jitsu. You increase your motor skills and coordination; your flexibility, endurance, and stamina; and your strength in all major muscle groups. You learn skills that use the right and left sides of the body equally—accessing both sides of your brains.
The results are rapid, and they are astounding. Our students are motivated to persevere, to advance through the ranks, and to pursue black belt status.
In addition to our core program we will have five electives or add on programs.
STORM Team (Special Team of Role Models)
All STORM team members will go through a Jr. Instructor training certification course. This program will educate students on what qualities and traits a role model should posses, how to share that with others, to be a finder of the good and how to effectively assist the head instructor. After being certified as a Jr. Instructor STORM team members will be able to assist the teacher on the mats during class.
The foundation of this program comes from the Zig Ziglar I CAN curriculum. I have followed Zigs inspirational teachings and messages for many years and it has helped me become a better person. If you are looking for a program that specializes in leadership training you have found it. The I CAN Program is taught regularly on a weekly basis throughout the school year. In helping to develop Character Education, we teach the elementary students the ABC's of life-Attitude, Behavior, and Character. To accomplish this goal, we teach the students to build a solid foundation first by introducing them to the elements of a base consisting of: Honesty, Character, Loyalty, Trust, Integrity and Love. Once the foundation is built they progress up the 'Stairway to Success'. Each step of the stairway is a section in the I CAN manual used in helping them to attain their success throughout life: Attitude, Self-image, Relationships, Goals, Desire, Work and Patriotism.
Four different weapons including Bo staff, nun chucks, kamas and samurai sword will be taught in three-month cycles throughout the year. Weapons and training are geared towards performing and showmanship. We never use weapons on each other, none of the weapons have sharp edges and safety is our priority. If your kid wants to be a Ninja Turtle this is the class for them!
