Always a significant moment in our school. Shiba TKD provides complimentary PE classes to a local homeschool co-op. A wonderful learning experience for all! Deputy Black Belt! Presenting the previous belt to a family member recognizes and honors all they have done to help their student succeed. Here, Master Shiba first gives some words of encouragement and challenges her student towards new goals. Each student progresses at their own pace instead of following a set group belt testing schedule. Tying on a yellow belt - the first belt after white belt! As Master Shiba said right after this - it is her favorite belt to tie on next to black belt. The shared joy and satisfaction of overcoming obstacles and mastering requirements means more than the new belt color for sure! Getting your individual moment at the end of class to recognize that you have met the requirements for the next belt is very meaningful. After Noah takes off his previous belt, Master Shiba puts it around her neck while tying on his new belt. Once the new belt is tied on, Master Shiba takes the old belt that is around her neck and gives it to one of his family members.
