    Having achieved your black belt and wanting to continue learning this course does not disappoint. Lots of new techniques and skills to learn an practice. Having started the 1st Dan training I could see where your training from White to red belt all starts to come together and then move forward adding another layer to your training. Well worth getting


    1st Dan Black Belt Course

    Definitely recommended, through informative videos which are just the right length you get exactly what you need to succeed with your technique. I used both dojo classes and the online material and they complement each other brilliantly. Online material allow you to learn in your own time and master the techniques before applying them in the dojo. I often forget a particular nuance of a technique and come back to the online course material to revise, which allows me to make the best of my time in the dojo.

    Highly recommended! These courses are very detailed and have videos, photos and quizzes to help you achieve your best on the mats. They also share the history of the system which gives you a greater appreciation for the system that Andy sensei has created.
