“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. 

Grading System

Grading examinations are held at the end of school term.
