MEET THE TEAM BEHIND REFLECT MARTIAL ARTS
Chief Instructor - School Owner
School Owner, Deputy Master, Chief Instructor, Examiner
Head Instructor, Examiner
Students invited into our special Black Belt Belt Club must meet our high standards and criteria; they must attend class at least twice a week and have exceptional attendance; they must be good role models to other students and demonstrate correct martial arts’ behaviour and etiquette at all times; they must be behaving well in school, at home and in other areas of their life; they must take their training seriously and be constantly looking to improve their techniques. Our Black Belt Club Members support younger/junior students and so develop good people skills as well as learning teaching methods and approaches from an early age.
Once a student reaches 10 years of age, they can graduate from The Black Belt Club into the STORM Team. S.T.O.R.M stands for Special Team of Role Models. In this position, a student’s role is similar to that of a Black Belt Club member, but with a little more responsibility.
S.T.O.R.M. team members assist with both the 3-6 and 7-11 year old classes. S.T.O.R.M. members are invited to attend special workshops to further develop their skills. They are one step away from becoming an Assistant Instructor, so begin working with the Chief Instructors to develop teaching techniques and interpersonal skills.
Once a student reaches 14 years of age, they can be invited to become an Assistant Instructor. Assistant Instructors play such an important role in Choi Kwang Do Schools, running warm-ups, cool downs, specific drills and exercises.
Assistant Instructors run introductory classes for students new to the Art. For those looking for a career within Choi Kwang Do, Assistant Instructor is the first step along the instructor path.
Reflect CKD has a leadership structure in place to support and inspire other students as well as helping us to run efficient and energetic classes! The standard of our Leadership Team is something we are all extremely proud of.
