HAITO KARATE TECHNIQUES

 

Getting Ready for Belt Gradings at HAITO Karate:

  • Improve Your Technique: Keep working on your skills, aiming for a good fit with all the moves.
  • Health First: Always tell your Sensei about any health issues. This way, they can make necessary adjustments for your training.
  • Regular Gradings: HAITO Karate holds belt gradings three times a year. It's your job to be prepared when they come around.
  • Help Out: If you're going for a higher belt, you should assist with teaching the younger classes, attend seminars, and take part in tournaments either as a competitor or as an official.
  • Be Flexible: Techniques can change. If anything changes, you'll be given warnings and time to adjust before your grading.

 

Remember, progressing through the belts is your responsibility. Stay committed and informed!
