Brown Belt, 3rd Degree - Sankyu
Brown 3rd is often the point at which the student truly sees the light at the end of the black belt tunnel. As instructors, we begin preparing the student for the role of black belt at Dragon-Phoenix Martial Arts. During the brown belt stage, students who wish to teach one day may be required to spend extra time in the dojo, not only for added instruction, but also to learn administrative functions of the school.
