dragon_logo

Sandan, 3rd Degree Black Belt

with the title of Master

 

The dragon symbolizes the inner dragons that we all must face, and that must be conquered to become a master martial artist. It is said of Jujitsu that it would require ten years of practice in order to win victory over one’s self and twenty years to win victory over others.

BowArrow_logo

Nidan, 2nd Degree Black Belt

with the title of Instructor

 

The bow and arrow symbolize the relationship between the student (arrow) and the teacher (bow), where each student with the help of the instructor can go further than the instructor has, but alone both are stationary, and thus the growth of each depends on the other.

dolphin_jump_logo Shodan, 1st Degree Black Belt  

The dolphin symbolizes an intelligent, graceful, compassionate – yet powerful being. Capable of defending itself and family, yet without malice towards others, even when mistreated. Shodan is an important transition from a beginning student to one who embarks on a life long search for knowledge.
