Colors of Character


The Colors of Character program was created to balance your child’s physical development with the concepts of Self Discipline, Respect for Others, and Self Control. The program consists of a series of exercises designed to help you instill and strengthen your child’s understanding of these core character traits. With the completion of each exercise your child will be awarded a colored bar to be affixed to their Colors of Character patch, which is worn on the left sleeve. These colored bars correspond with the colored belt ranks.

• Students should complete the assignment that matches their current belt color.
• Students may complete the assignment that is one color above their rank.
• They will receive each new assignment in their Promotion Kit following belt testing.
