On your journey to attaining Black Belt rank, Demo Team, Instructor, or beyond, you begin with the first step. Stepping onto the training mat you listen and watch your instructor, learn the forms and exercises, and practice. You practice a lot. And when you and your instructor think you are ready, you will test for your Yellow Belt. Then repeat, again, and again, and again.
