The rank of Black Belt, or 1st Dan, is a very important milestone in a martial artist’s training. While most people think obtaining a Black Belt is some how an end to this training, it is, in fact, only the beginning. When a student obtains his first Black Belt, he is now much more aware of his physical and mental abilities. He can start to draw on an inner strength to help him perform both in Martial Arts and in everyday life. At DARIMAR Martial Arts, we consider obtaining the rank of Black Belt to be a great accomplishment for a student.
