Excalibur Black Belts

Excalibur Martial Arts Bridgnorth Taekwondo Black Belt Shropshire
Some of our Excalibur Martial Arts Black Belts

We are proud of each and every student who trains with Excalibur Martial Arts and are keen to celebrate all achievements, whether it be learning a new pattern, perfecting a kick or being successfully promoted at a grading.

Those students who go on to achieve a Dan Grade have dedicated thousands of hours of training, perseverance and a tough training regime to reach their goals.  As a colour belt, a student may see the achievement of their 1st Dan Black Belt as their ultimate goal, however, when they reach it they realise that, really, it is just the beginning.
