Koryo Martial Arts students achieving amazing things at all levels ...

So we cannot keep saying this enough !!! It DOES NOT get easier, but YOU DO get better !

And not everyone acheives at the same level, you get assessed and progress on the ability you have. Not everyone can jump as high as others, or kick as high... and thats ok ! Your progress is based on your abilities, and it doesnt have to be perfect, it just needs to be your best.

The Board Breaks

Don't worry ! you will practice this in class before the big day ! We will not let you fail this one. Our White Belt boards are also very thin and easy to break. The point of this board break is to get you cofortable and confident in starting to break boards, especially when you are under pressure and every one is watch. You will learn that little thin boards are nothing to be scared of ! As you prepare for the bigger thicker boards at Black Belt level. We start preparing you from day one. We do not make you wait till you are a higher level belt to start having the real fun.

Your Martial Arts Skills

Your grading includes a demostration of all your skills, including kicking, self defence, poose patterns and as you progress to high levels, you will start doing combination kicks and jumping kicks.

Who's watching ? Your masters will be assessing and supporting you
