It is important for each child to learn to set short-term, intermediate, and long-term goals. At Charlotte Martial Arts Academy every child’s long-term goal is Black Belt. Black Belt is the symbol of excellence in martial arts and an important tool for instructors and parents to use in the development of desire, tenacity, and for teaching the importance of follow-through in all activities.


All young people in the program are required to bring copies of their grades from school and/or complete parent/teacher intent to promote forms prior to testing. Charlotte Martial Arts Academy’s instructors work hand-in-hand with schoolteachers and parents to ensure a well-balanced and focused development process for each child.
