A recognized Black Belt of the AKF has achieved his or her rank one way and one way only: Sheer effort and determination. Black Belts spend (literally) thousands of hours - not to mention buckets of sweat - on the training floor. There are no favours asked and none given!
Many of our Black Belts are Volunteer Instructors and combine their professional lives with the practice and teaching of karate, instructing programs which blend the ancient study of traditional karate with the modern application of self-defence training.
Great time and effort has been given by each instructor to the development of the Amateur Karate Foundation as a recognized martial arts organization of distinct quality.
