What is the Black Belt Club?

Chief Instructor Keith Gilliland has developed a specific program for character building based on the ideal of Black Belt Excellence. The Black Belt Club is a very special group of students who have dedicated themselves to Black Belt Excellence. Black Belt Club members are all serious martial artists who have committed themselves to the goal of obtaining their Black Belt. They strive for excellence in all aspects of life, as well as developing their physical skills and knowledge of all aspects of the martial arts. They are Committed, Dedicated, Confident, Determined and Enthusiastic. They represent all the best qualities of what a Black Belt should be. They are the Black Belts and Instructors of the future, the core of the school and they best represent what Gilliland Martial Arts Academy stands for.Email us for the full benefits of joining the B.B.C.
