View Full Version : how long did it take to get ur blackbelt
how long did it take you guys to get your blackbelts? i know then general answer is 3-5 years but im asking on a more personal level. how long did each of you train before you were awared the rank of black belt? im not here to critique anyone if u did it faster or longer, just curious.
I assume you mean time to 1st dan.
Hapkido - just under 6 years (first style I earned dan rank in)
TKD - 3 years
Kenpo - 3 1/2 years (with 3 time-outs due to healing from surgery)
Arnis - still working on it after 3 years
Kyo Sa Michel Pope
It took me just under 5 yrs of training in TSDMDK
It took me 4 years to get mine. I started in Sept 1987 and got my Chodan in Aug 1991.
Took me longer to get my Eedan... but that's another story.
