Student Rankings
Purpose :
The purpose for this page is for everyone to see where they are and strive for the next level. As you move up through the ranks, you will see your name move up the page.

It doesn't matter how long you have been training, on a calender, but how much you actually put in to your training. You can move quickly or slowly. It completely depends on you. It's all about time on the mat and the drive to actually learn and understand the system and style of Judo and Jiu-Jitsu we are teaching. Personal growth, both physical and mental.

Lead by example. Be a good member of the school. Take care of your training partners. Look out for each other, help one another learn and grow. You represent all of us. Our Martial Arts Family. Carry yourself and act with Honor, Respect, and Dignity inside and outside of the Dojo.
