Belt Progress & Advancement
Karate offers a systematic method of student development and progress measured by colored belts. Eggleston's Karate Studio's instructors will guide the willing student through the intense training required to achieve the rank of "black belt."
Students are expected to gain efficiency of the requirements at each level. Requirements are carried forward for each succeeding belt from the previous level.

"True karate is this: that in daily life one's mind and body be trained and developed in a spirit of humility, and that in critical times, one be devoted utterly to the cause of justice."

Our son looks forward to days he has karate- what an exciting time, it's awesome watching him thrive under their guidance and instruction. They teach in a loving, firm, easy to understand way so our son experiences success from hard work."

"I enrolled my two boys, Jamie and Niko, when they were 7 and 5 years old. In the next two years they learned not just valuable self-defense skills, but more importantly, honor, self-discipline, going all out, respect, and perseverance. It was the best investment that I have ever made in my kids. EKS Karate is world class. 2001 World Champion, Renshi, is the reason you should enroll your kids. Have them train from the best."
— Chris Dimitris
"One of the best choices you will make. Our son has participated at EKS for 19 years now. He started at 7 and continued all through his school years. He went to college, came home and still participates and teaches with this karate family. The owners and instructors here really do care for each and every student."
