White Belt is the first rank a student is given.  Common Martial Arts practice is to give this rank to anyone who begins practicing Martial Arts.  This is where you will begin as a student, and this is going to be an exciting adventure.

As you progress from the rank of White Belt, each belt will be studied in three phases.  Each phase represents a time marker to completing your rank time requirements.  Once you have completed all three phases you will then be recommended for Belt testing.  Once all the time requirements have been meet you may test for rank.  If you test, and fail to pass, you are not allowed to test again for three months of the failed test date.  If you fail a second time you are not allowed to test again for six months of the second failed test date.

You will notice this contains a testing sheet to complete the requirements for the Belt.  This needs to be given to your instructor on the day of testing.  Your instructor will grade each technique on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being perfect.  You will be asked to demonstrate each move on both sides when possible.  If you score less than a 3 on any move you fail the test!  Once you have successfully passed your test and earned your belt, please confirm with your instructor that all the correct paperwork is sent into the Eclectic Kombat main office.

For a student who moves from the Junior Rank belt system into the Senior Rank belt system, the initial Senior Rank White Belt will be a White/(highest Junior Rank) Color.
