To achieve a new level of proficiency is a great feeling and acknowledgement that one is getting better. When someone starts on his or her journey in the Martial Arts it is very important to set goals, and each level is a goal for our students. All of the ranks are earned and never given, which gives the students a greater appreciation for their accomplishments”, Ciarleglio said.
