The 8 Qualities of Black Belt Excellence

Honesty, modesty, courtesy, integrity, high moral code, courage, perseverance and indomitable spirit.


I will give talks on these from time to time in class; especially to the juniors. It is my personal opinion that these 8 qualities are an absolute must in any martial arts black belt. I’m not talking just about Kuk Sool Won. ANY black belt is held in a very particular regard and in the wise words of Spiderman “With great power comes great responsibility.”

Lead by example, teach with love, enthusiasm and character, earn respect, don’t expect it.
