"Davis Karate Junior Black Belt Programme" motivates children to become black belts.

Davis Karate Junior black belt programme has developed for children who can master most techniques as adult black belts.
Some children can learn and perform correct techniques as good as some adults. They deserve to have black belts.
Junior black belt holders focus on sparring and kata application towards official Shito-ryu 1st dan certificates.


What happens to a student when he/she turns 12 years old?

The student starts training in the adult class and gets graded in the adult grading system while they keep their junior belts.
