Q: WHAT DOES THE RED BELT WITH A BLACK STRIPE MEAN?

A: This belt signifies an instructor who has attained the rank of brown belt, and has shown exceptional physical and teaching abilities. The Sempai (assistant) is not a black belt, but is in training for one.

Q: HOW SHOULD I ADDRESS A BLACK BELT?

A: All black belts that teach are referred to as “Sensei.” Just because you are a black belt does not mean that you are a Sensei. That is a separate promotion. 1st-3rd degree black belts are referred to as “Sensei,” 4th-6th degree black belts are referred to as “Renshi.”

Q: WHAT ABOUT SPECIAL TRAINING, COMPETITION, WEAPONS?

A: At Busto’s karate, we have a variety of levels of training. You can stay on the regular path and achieve your goals, or if you or your son/daughter feels like they want to be challenged more, as one of the instructors, and they will let you know if now is the tight time to accelerate your training.
